Dear Moderators,

Brian Castro, “A collection of tales with hints of Chaucer,..."

Chaucer's credo: AMOR VINCIT OMNIA.

What's Prof Xu's credo?

NB: Chaucer's translation of Le Roman de la Rose is available at the HK Cenetral Library.

Poésie = danse, prose = marche.

"Marche, comme prose, tjs un objet précis, acte dirigé vers objet dont le but est de la joindre."

Danse, comme poésie, ne va nulle part, n’a pour fin qu’elle-même, ne poursuit rien ou un objet idéal, un état, une volupté, un ravissement de soi-même… "

--Paul Valéry, Variété/« Propos sur la poésie ».

From a sociolinguistic view-point, I'm not for Pure Poetry. Walking & dancing are very good metaphors.

Bona fide
