Chinese ancient poetry stands out with its beauty of artistic conception in the history of Chinese literature. Translation is indispensable when helping foreign readers appreciate such beauty. However, due to the dramatic difference between two languages and cultures, the original beauty could be diminished when it is presented in the target language. It is a big problem confronting the translators that how to translate the poem of one language into the poem of another while maintaining the beauty in the source language. Based on Wang Guowei's theory of artistic conception and Xu Yuanchong's translation practices, this thesis is aimed to explore applicable strategies of reproducing the beauty of artistic conception.
