Welcome to the main page of a mini site
on Chinese poetry and folklore related to love. It contains two Chinese
love poems with English translation and information about the poets and
a folktale about Chinese Valentine's Day. The Chinese text is in traditional
characters. No special interface or encoding is needed to view the characters.
An audio player such as Windows Media Player is needed to listen to the
music and poem recitation in Chinese and English. If you do not have a player,
you can download a free copy of Winamp.
It is not the objective of this site to
be a resource for Chinese poetry. Rather, the site is intended for Chinese
literature and cultural appreciation in a multimedia environment. Target
users are teachers and students with an intermediate to advanced level of
proficiency in Mandarin Chinese who use traditional characters. If you have
any questions or comments, please contact me at KylieHsu@msn.com.
