|Other Titles:||Chrysanthemum and Execution in Autumn：Probing into Min Prison Poetry of the Ching Offical Literati--Chou Liang Gong in the Early Ching Dynasty|
Department of Chinese, NTNU
In the 12th year of Shunzi (1665), A Ching official, Chou Liang Gong, was impeached suddenly, and it started the outset of the Min Prison Case for six years. This article probes into his poems which he wrote in the capital—Beijing after the three years of the interrogation. In the first year of Double Ninth Festival, his poems were filled with the yearning of hometown. Simultaneously, he was afraid that his expectation will be all in vain, and the mood of returning home was like chrysanthemums’ shadow in a vase. In the second year of Double Ninth Festival, it’s extremely possible his death time. However, the symbol of incomplete and broken autumn chrysanthemum inspired him to write more poems and books, and it also showed his aspiration and sentiment forever. The unsmooth official career of Zhou Liang Gong revealed the difficulties of the early Ching literati. Zhou used his near death experience and combined the nostalgic and the dead implication of autumn chrysanthemum. Autumn chrysanthemum was not only the virtuous and haughty symbol of his strong will, but also the prediction of near death after autumn.
