Description During the first 30 years of the twentieth century, Vietnamese literature began to enter the period of restructuring in the direction of modernization. This process occurred in the conflicting existence between two tendencies: the former educated class tried to preserve the traditional values of the classical literature whereas the younger scholars actively absorbed the modern Western literature and gradually moved towards the new literature. Faced with the challenges and opportunities of the time, a Confucian like Tan Da boldly removed the “olds” in the pursuit of the “news”, integrating the Western thoughts into the Eastern wisdom to crystallize a unique and brand new form of literature. His works embraced the depth brought by the Oriental culture and adopted more colors with the Western breaths. Within this modernization process, his efforts to approach modern novels and his tendency to liberalize poetry are two among the most important contributions of Tan Da, opening up possibilities for the next generation of writers as well as helping accelerate modernization in national literature.
