MU DAN'S POEM 'REVELATION', THE BIBLE AND WESTERN MODERNISM
The purpose of this paper is to unscramble the Christian elements in Revelation by Mu Dan, a modern Chinese poet. Mu Dan borrowed them from the Holy Bible and Western modernist literature, which made his poetry unique. The books of Psalms Ecclesiastes and Job from the Holy Bible motivated him to use prayer as a literature form in Revelation. Mu Dan's religious poems have enriched our thinking about human civilization and the meaning of life. They also provide a special perspective to understand the modern Chinese intellectuals interested in Christian belief and the difficulties they have encountered.
