黃遵憲在新加坡 海南會館楹聯(李俊賢攝)
「海洋城市的時代印記:黃遵憲在新加坡的楹聯試析」。馬聖美、王儀君、楊雅惠主編:《城市與海洋論集》(高雄:國立中山大學人文研究中心,國立中山大學文學院,2011年10月),頁1-25。

新加坡海南會館內有一對黃遵憲(1848-1905)的楹聯,是目前存世罕見的黃遵憲題聯,尚未受到學術界關注。
本文解讀黃遵憲在新加坡海南會館的楹聯內容,推想黃遵憲為海南會館題寫楹聯的可能因素,繼而探討楹聯的書法筆蹟。

由黃遵憲楹聯,本文引申出對新加坡這個十九世紀興起的海洋城市的思考,即環繞移民與殖民,建設新加坡為國際都會的基本特質。

Mark the Times of a Ocean City: Study of Huang Zun-xian’s Couplets in Singapore
The Singapore Hainan Hwee Kuan has kept a rare pair of Huang Zun-Xian’s (1848-1905) couplets. As yet this pair of couplets from Huang has not received any academic attention.

This paper aims to analyze the content of the couplets kept in Hainan Hwee Kuan, as well as interpreting the possible reasons for Huang Zun-Xian to write these couplets. On top of that, this paper will then discuss the couplets’ handwriting in detail.
From the couplets written by Huang Zun-Xian, this paper will carry out some reflections about Singapore as a maritime city flourishing and growing since the nineteenth century, the reflection will be based on immigration and colonization, the two basic qualities which contribute to the development of Singapore as a world class city.
