- I give without self-interest, without asking for anything in return. Roll out and devote yourself to the country and society without thinking about anything.

Verse 2

1. Opening lesson:

– About the author Xuan Quynh: Xuan Quynh is one of the mature poets in the resistance war against the US. She is considered one of the best love poetry writers in Vietnamese poetry. It is a love that is both passionate, vibrant, passionate, both earnest and tender, rich in intuition, and deeply experienced in contemplation.

– Introduction of the work: “Waves” is a typical work of Xuan Quynh printed in the volume “Flowers along the trenches” published in 1968. The work has expressed the desire for love as a need for self-awareness and discovery. break. The poetic emotion is thus both vibrant and intense, as well as evoking the depth of philosophy.

– Introduction to the topic: Feelings about the excerpt. Comment on the feminine beauty in Xuan Quynh's poetry.

2. Body of the article:

Location of the excerpt: The excerpt from the work "Waves" is limited from the 3rd stanza to the 5th stanza. The excerpt refers to a woman's desire for self-realization and nostalgia in love.

Feel the excerpt:* A girl's self-realization aspiration in love (Verse 3 and stanza 4)

The image of "wave" describes the nature of love - the inexplicable mystery of love:

Before all the waves and waves


When do we fall in love?

– In this stanza, the character “em” directly appeared, facing the waves of the sea, with the vastness of heaven and earth, I thought about the great sea of my love: “Before all… up”. The method of alliteration and alliteration structure the sentence "I think about" with the constant questions: "Since when did the wave start? where does the wind start? When will we fall in love?" described my anxiety and anxiety when thinking about love.

– “I think” those two words repeat as discovery, investigation:

+ About the big sea: "Where do the waves come from?" -> Answer: “Waves start from wind”

+ About you and me: "When will we fall in love?" -> Answer "I don't know either"

– When love comes, as a natural, normal thing, people always have a need to understand and explain. Xuan Quynh borrowed waves to explain love: "Waves start from the wind / Where does the wind start?". However, the laws of nature, heaven and earth can also be explained by knowledge and understanding, but the source of love cannot be clearly defined. Because love belongs to the emotional spectrum, it is the very rich vibrations of each soul. The poet could only confess his helplessness in a very lovely way: "I don't know either - When will we fall in love" The two sentences with the island structure (first answer, later question) honestly describe the confusion and also the happiness of a woman when in love.

=> Two questions intertwine, merging into one. We can explain the origin of the waves and the wind, but we cannot explain the origin of love. It's strangely mysterious but also very natural. Therein lies the attraction of love.

* Nostalgia in love (Verse 5)

The image of "wave" describes nostalgia in love:

Waves in the depths


Despite all the obstacles

- The fifth stanza left a word "remember". Nostalgia associated with the space "under the deep", "above the water", with the "shore"; it covers the whole "day and night, can't sleep", and invades the human soul even in the unconscious "My heart misses you / Even in my dreams I'm awake". One word "remember" can say many things.

– “The wave misses the shore” is nostalgia that transcends space, “Cannot sleep day and night” is nostalgia that transcends time. It is an inconsolable earnest, longing to the end.

– From the nostalgia of the waves for the shore, Xuan Quynh talked about her nostalgia for you: “My heart misses you/ Both in my dream and awake”. These are probably the two best verses in the poem. More than waves, my nostalgia not only covers space and time but also goes deep into the subconscious, into the unconscious.

– I have transformed into the wave. Waves have merged into my soul to become a restless soul.

– This is the only stanza in the poem with up to 6 verses, the break has contributed to expressing the intense surge of nostalgia in love.

Comment on the feminine beauty in Xuan Quynh's poetry.- The feminine beauty in Xuan Quynh's poetry is the voice of a woman's soul when in love, expressed in a tender, loving way.

– Song poem is one of the typical poems expressing femininity in Xuan Quynh's poetry. The love expressed in the poem is both strong and passionate, yet gentle and deep, which has created the feminine beauty in the wave image.

That love is also filled with concerns and thoughts of a girl when she falls in love. The worries and anxieties are expressed by Xuan Quynh very soft and feminine through questions such as: I don't know / When will we fall in love.

– That femininity is also expressed in an ordinary and simple way through the desire for happiness in everyday life - the constant desire expressed in Xuan Quynh's poetry. It is the burning, burning nostalgia, "whether in a dream or awake" of a girl when she falls in love. Strong love, ready to overcome all difficulties and storms. It is also the desire to dedicate, the desire to be incarnated, to be integrated into the great sea of love.

=> The poem Wave is the clearest proof of the feminine beauty in Xuan Quynh's poetry. The work shows the beauty of the soul as well as the compassion of a woman when in love.
