Abstract—As a local poet of Gansu during the war period, Ms. Yuexia’s poems have become an integral part of the literary scene in Gansu during this period. Since her creative works were concentrated in the early period of the Anti-Japanese War, Ms. Yuexia’s poems present a somber beauty like the war situation, with distinctive wartime experience and sense of confusion and disillusionment in terms of subject matter, imagery, and emotion. Through Ms. Yuexia’s poetry, we can not only observe the process of learning and absorbing the old and new poetic styles in the debate and competition in the early 1930s, but also understand the real picture of Gansu’s literary world in the period of the Anti-Japanese War on the basis of her poetry.

Keywords—Ms. Yuexia, antiwar, Gansu’s literary
