The Life and Poetry of Seow Yeoh Thian

Seow Yeoh Thian (1913-1990), was an educator, writer, calligrapher, painter, scholar, and most importantly to this lecture, an accomplished poet, who came to Nanyang from China. Through the sharing of his poetry, we could catch a glimpse of the times he lived in, which spanned almost the entire 20th century.
