Great Poeticism or Great Poetry Movement is a poetic trend in the Chinese poetry world in the 21st century. Great poetry can be traced back to epic poetry. It was proposed by Chinese poet Hai Zi in the 1980s, and in 2007, poet Cao Shui wrote the “Manifesto of Great Poeticism” and jointly launched the Great Poetry Movement with poets such as Xi Yuan and Xi Di. They advocats the extraction of elements from various civilizations, integrating sacred and secular cultures, integrating Eastern and Western cultures, integrating ancient and modern cultures, to creat a brand new world of imagery. He founded the magazine “Grand Poetry-Literary Perspective”. Great Poetry Movement was listed as one of the 20 avant-garde poetic schools in China. In “Dancing on the Pen Tip: A Witness to the Literature of the 80s” (formerly known as “History of Literature of the 80s”) edited by Xu Duoyu, have been introduced in a special chapter in the “Literary Theory” volume. Along with Statism and Sensory Writing, they are known as the three major literary trends initiated by the post-80s Chinese writers. Representative poets include Zhuang Ling, Han Bing, Lei Xun, Shen Jia, Shen Xue, Ye Mo, Shu Xian, Ying Zi, Su Ming, Yue Jian, Peng Shujin, Yin Zixu, Xu Yanmu, Guo Liangzhong, Shan Yuyang, Nuobu Langjie and many other post-80s and post-90s poets. In 2018-2020, Cao Shui, who represented the “Great Poetry Movement” and Yi Sha’s “Post-Colloquial Poetry School”, engaged in a three-year debate, which was referred to as the “Cao-Yi Dispute” in the poetry world. In the first issue of “Literary Freedom Talk” in 2023, Cao Shui, who wrote an article titled “Cao-Yi Dispute and the Ten Major Disadvantages of the Chinese Literary World” in the form of a cover poet, summarized that the “Cao-Yi Dispute” erupted one hundred years after Hu Shi wrote the “Trial Collection”,which is the first poetry collection published in mordern Chinese, which was probably caused by a series of factors, At that time, many people interpreted it as the “debate over the century long path of Chinese new poetry”, believing it to be the biggest controversy in the Chinese poetry world since the “Panfeng Dspute”(The Debate between Intellectuals Poets and Folk Poets in Chinese History) and the “most modern controversy of the 21st century”. The core of this debate is the issue of the direction of Chinese new poetry, whether it is the “Post-Colloquial Poetry” advocated by Yi Sha, the “Great Poetry” advocated by Cao Shu. During this process, He was able to discern the various strange current situations in the literary world, and literature called for an in-depth “literary reform movement”. Since 2017, with Cao Shui’s participation in the World Poetry Movement, the Great Poetry Movement has gradually spread to various countries around the world, and together with the World Poetry Movement(WPM) and the Poets of Planet Movement(PoP), it is known as the “Three Great Movements of World Poetry”.
