對聯是我國特有的一種語言文學藝術形式,是重要的文化遺產。不少人在日常生活中,每逢時令佳節或婚喪慶吊,都會撰寫對聯來表情達意。自唐代以來,文人雅士創作了大量對聯,其中不少是著名文學家的創作,並且由傑出書法家書寫。這些對聯,為我們提供了寶貴的文化藝術資料。本講座選取古今優秀對聯,從内容、格律和寫作技巧等方面評論分析,讓參與者在欣賞這些佳作的同時,能夠掌握創作對聯的竅門。

The couplet is an important Chinese cultural heritage. It is a combination of the artistry of using the Chinese language in a poetic manner and writing the Chinese characters in a beautiful way. Couplets are often composed for important occasions like the Spring Festival, weddings, birthdays, and funerals in Chinese communities worldwide. Since the Tang Dynasty, numerous excellent couplets have been composed, many of them being the combined effort of famous writers and distinguished calligraphers. Therefore, they are not only precious literary works but also valuable works of art. This talk discusses representative ancient and modern couplets from the perspectives of their content, artistry, and the rules of tonal and rhythmic patterns for their composition, with the aim of revealing the secrets of writing this genre.
