Abstract

The cultural interactions between China and the West can be divided into two phases. In the first phase, they generally followed a two-way model. In the second phase, China started ‘learning everything from the West’, so that a one-way model gradually came into being. Because it was in this second phase that both Xu Zhimo, a famous Chinese poet, who spent time in Cambridge, and William Empson, a famous Cambridge scholar, who spent time China, were active, they share the same characteristic of bringing a significant Western influence to China, while not doing much in the opposite direction.
