Bai Yuji Poems

Poem created in England, 1843-1845

The method is a very unique and creative way of looking at poems or pieces of writings in general. This helped me overall understand what the writer is trying to say because I notice words that are being repeated, which means he is emphasizing them, so there must be some sort of importance behind them. So I look deeper into it and start to make connections with other poems that have similar words. It just overall gives me a better understanding of the whole writing as a whole. Also writing little side notes on the side helps a lot just in case you forget any ideas that you might have had earlier in the reading. Just like how in the poems “Making fun of the Envoy Cui Shi” and “Written in haste to thank Imperial Censor* Meng for his gift of freshly picked tea” they both use the same structural pattern to a certain extent. In both the poems they go through cups of tea numbered one through three in Cui Shi and being numbered one through seven in Imperial Meng. Also in both poems they both have one point which is overall saying tea purifies you and takes away all bad things. But overall this is a great way at looking at writings, and should be taught not only in college but in highschools as well.
