"Life, it's been said, is one big book." What can we learn about the reading life from modern China's most famous literary couple? This talk will explore their remarkable collaboration in life and literature, from Qian's Written in the Margins of Life (1941) to Arriving at the Margins of Life (2007), which Yang wrote at age 96.
In partnership with UBC Department of Asian Studies.
"人生據說是一部大書。"錢鍾書二十九歲時如是說。那麼對錢鍾書與楊絳這對文學大師, 從這部大書讀到了些什麼呢?卑詩大學中華研究中心主任雷勤風教授(Christopher Rea, Ph. D.), 將從錢先生1941年散文集《寫在人生邊上》（Xie zai ren sheng bian shang), 說到楊先生以九十六歲高齡完成的《走到人生邊上》（Zou dao ren sheng bian shang， 2007), 為我們解讀與詮釋這對"神仙眷侶"的文學生涯。
