The catastrophic changes of political situation in late Qing China had brought in myriad of ideological trends and accessories. As a stimulus, the traditional literary forms had themselves fine-tuned so as to react with the social and cultural forces while ci poetry retained its old style and seemingly exempted itself from literary reforms of all sorts. Zhu Zumou was a shi poet of repute of his time. At the age of 40, he abandoned shi and dedicated to ci writing. Meanwhile, Zhu had it asserted that his shi would be no worth of posthumous circulation. Given that ci differs from shi in their aesthetic sense, the strong-willed demarcation in artistic creation illustrated that ci fitted in with Zhu’s pursuit in literary articulation as a Confucian in late Qing, and later as a Confucian loyalist after The 1911 Revolution. Zhu, among his associates, acquainted with ci the latest yet his expertise was of the highest attainments and had been reappointed the head of ci poetry society consecutively. His works was then revered as the paradigm in its field. However, in early Republican China, classical literature was not in the prestigious main stream. The sharp transformation from imperial dynasty to modern nation state had casted manifold cultural shocks upon the loyalists, thus causing the word Confucianistlost its ethical and institutional ground. In view of this, Zhu, with the circumstantial factors he engaged in, redefined the essence of Confucianist by the political and literary courses he proceeded on.
Critical attention of this essay will be drawn to explicate the political implications of Qiangcun Yuye via the aesthetic disparities between shi and ci poetry. The fourth and fifth chapter will first exemplify the ethical dilemmas that the Qing loyalists encountered and how Zhu’s self-agency reacted with the social force through shi and ci on modern historical trauma. The fifth Chapter scrutinized the intertextuality between Zhu’s emulation on Yuan’s Suite Poems to The Tone of Jiegu Tian, which share the features of Palace-Style Poetry. Seeing that close reading may not bring the intendment to light, the sixth chapter will illuminate Zhu’s works of yaji from the Siyin Cabinet gathering in the Gengzi Crisis and Ou Society in a chronic basis and contextualize the works to the social situations they were immediately written. To conclude my research, this essay intended to disinter the original intensions of Zhu’s unswerving adherence to ci writing and how Zhu tranquilized his jeopardizing experience through ci poetry.
