Vietnam: A Culture of Poetry

A Seminar with John Balaban

Mar 21, 1998 | 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

For thousands of years, poetry has been an integral part of the Vietnamese culture. Rural people who could not read or write composed oral lyric poetry, while kings wrote for their intellectual recreation. This seminar considers the literary tradition of a culture where, even today, poetry is used in courting, gambling and political debate.
