Singapore literary pioneer Khoo Seok Wan (1874-1941) had experienced a life of ups and downs. He was once the leader of the local Chinese business community, and yet he spent his final years in poverty and illness. These experiences had in turn influenced his literary works, imbuing them with heartfelt emotions, and hence earning him the title of “esteemed poet of the southern sojourners”.

Join librarian Jessie Yak as she traces Khoo’s life, friends and contributions, and analyses his poetry with examples drawn from the National Library’s collection.

Free Admission. This programme will be conducted in Chinese.

侠骨柔情佳公子:邱菽园

本地文艺先驱邱菽园,拥有极具传奇性的一生,从年少的富甲一方到死前的贫病缠身,而这跌宕起伏、尝尽人间冷暖的经历也丰富了他的诗作,使他被尊称为“南侨诗宗”。
