The Study of the Lyrical Dimension of Account from the Works of Han Yu
This article aims to discuss a kind of literary form, called as chi (記, account) in classical prose by Han Yu (韓愈), whose core function is originally for utility, and practicability. Why does chi, pioneered by Han Yu, a literary classicist of Tang Dynasty (唐朝), successfully transform into a kind of literary practice, embedded with lyrical qualities as its primary function? In terms of literary genre, Han Yu can conform to restrictions, and limitations in traditional style of writing; at the same time, Han Yu can break through these restrictions, and limitations, and comes up with a new kind of literary form, which renders lyricism feasible in chi style, and enhance a sense of lyrical aesthetics in Chinese literature. Thus, chi style of writing forms two kinds of new phenomena, and embodies its own characteristics: (1) practicability can be incorporated with lyricism, and (2) lyricism can be also substituted for a function of practicability. These two kinds of phenomena have a strong impact upon later literary classicists of Northern Song Dynasty (北宋), such as Ouyang Xiu (歐陽脩), etc.
