Look and love everyone, whoever sees this landscape is stunned Hồ Xuân Hưởng
To understand Việt Nam, keep in mind that poetry remains a national pastime. Rhymes, puns, word play, metrical schemata, aphorisms, banners all over the place, all blend to create an identity that blooms into daily graceful utterance. I’ve never seen people come up with better titles for things than the Vietnamese.
Do you know Hồ Xuân Hưởng’s poem Questions for the Moon?
