Collection of Qu Yuan (Chinese classical literature series) (中国古典文学基本丛书:屈原集校注)

屈原在九章抽思中说“结微情以陈词兮,矫以遗夫美人”,说明他的有些辞作本为“献诗陈志”而作,并不限于个人抒发感情。史记列傅说屈原“存君兴国而欲反复之,一篇之中三致志焉”;下面又说“令尹子兰闻之大怒”。道一事实也说明屈原辞谁多有违碍之言,但在当时却并不保密,而是在社会上有所流传的。又屈原列传说:“屈原既死之后,楚 有宋主、唐勒、景差之徒者,皆好辞而以赋见称;然皆祖屈原之从容辞令,终莫敢直谏。”这进一步证明了屈原辞流传的社会性。可以想见,屈辞在楚国人士中的影响是不小的;至于宋玉、唐勒、景差等楚辞作者,既然“皆祖屈原之从容辞令”,当然更会致力于屈辞的收集、整理、保管和傅习。另外,还应充分估计到屈原辞通过民间渠道流传于后世的可能性。

Example text

As feisty as he was, the boy often became overwhelmed by the attention. When the caravan arrived at a village along the route, hundreds or thousands of Tibetans often waited, thronging the road and asking for his blessing, causing the four-year-old to break into tears. ” Still days away from the capital, the boy shed his peasant clothes for the last time and was dressed in the maroon-and-gold robes of a Buddhist monk. Then the Mendel Tensum was performed, in which the boy was presented with a reliquary, a scripture, and a statuette of the Buddha of Long Life, gifts appropriate to a high lama.

It was a remarkable document. Dog-eared copies of it were passed around in Tibetan villages for years, and the young Fourteenth Dalai Lama would study it nightly to learn the intricacies of Tibetan grammar. The death of a Dalai Lama has always been a deeply traumatic event for Tibetans. The state is always most vulnerable in the time—traditionally ranging between nine and twenty-four months—that the search for the new incarnation is carried out and a successor named. ) The nervous anticipation that all Tibetans feel on the death of their Precious Protector flows partly from the fatal and scarred history of the Dalai Lamas.

As anywhere, numbers translated into power. The monasteries also doubled as universities, offering the only real education that peasant children could hope for, while at the same time owning huge tracts of land and collecting revenues that dwarfed the government budget. Buddhism was much more than a state religion; it was the sole reason for Tibet’s existence. The faith became the institution around which all other things in the society were molded: the economy, the military (or lack thereof), foreign policy, domestic policy.
