A Cognitive Interpretation of the Notion of Self in Chinese Modern Poetry
- cognition; Chinese modern poetry; duality; cognitive origin
This paper is intended to look at the notion of self in Chinese modern poetry from the perspective of cognition. By a meticulous analysis of the semantic characteristics of the first person pronoun as well as the process of the conceptualization of its collocations, this paper comes up with a comparatively unconventional interpretation of how the notion of self contributes to the significance of Chinese modern poetry, namely, the self is of the importance of duality and acts as the cognitive origin of the poetic endeavor to construct the overall framework of the aesthetic and philosophic concepts of Chinese modern poetry. This interpretation also helps to foster a paradigm that features an integration of literary studies and cognitive analysis for the explorations of poems as a genre.
