Phong Lê

Tóm tắt

First of all it is the meeting of two ends of the century, that is the target of Canh tân (renewal) of strong-willed Confucian scholars at the beginning of the century and the objective of Đổi mới (renewal) launched and led by the Vietnam Communist Party at the end of the century. One of the other issues is the consideration that the literary renewal is above all the consequence of changes in the economic and political life. At the same time the literature and arts themselves also have their own immanent rules and they move in correlation with economy and politics. The other issues are concerned with concrete theoretical ones such as the freedom of creation, the responsibility of citizen, the relations between the contents and form, the thought and the art, the literary schools and styles, the materials and tones, the expansion of familiar functions of literature and arts. Finally it is the realization that reasons for the inadequacy of literary zenith works are caused by subjective restrictions of the artist in all three aspects: talent, ardour and stature, The research in these problems is aimed at seeking the direction of actively preparing for a turning-point in the need of the appearance of a young generation which plays the role of main force, the product of the epoch we are living today the time of commencing the 21st century.
