Since the 2021 Spring Festival Gala “out of the circle”, Henan Satellite TV has been “exploded” by a series of programs.
In the play of the large-scale dance new variety show “Dancing for a Thousand Years”, Li Bai reappeared: I saw him dressed in white, dancing alone under the moon, and breaking up the falling snow with the Longquan in his hand, breaking the world for thousands of years. impression of him.
Actually, this is the real Li Bai, a gentleman.
Li Bai who can’t dance the sword is not a good poet
In AD 701, Li Bai was born in Broken leaves. The sturdy Hu Feng and the nomadic civilization planted unrestrained seeds in the heart of young Li Bai, and later entered Sichuan with his father. In the mountains and rivers of the Sichuan-Chongqing land, this seed grows in the wind.
In history, Tang Wenzong regarded Li Bai’s poetry, Zhang Xu’s cursive script, and Pei Min’s swordsmanship as the three masterpieces of the Tang Dynasty. . Among them, Pei Min is Li Bai’s teacher. Li Bai was able to recite the Six Classics at the age of five, and watched hundreds of schools at the age of ten. At the age of fifteen, he began to worship Pei Min as his teacher and learned swordsmanship.
It is recorded in Pei Jing’s “Hanlin Bachelor Li’s Tombstone” that Li Bai once wrote a book to learn swords under the name of the general, here is General Pei, known as the first swordsman of the Tang Dynasty, Pei Min.
Li Bai, under the guidance of famous teachers, is superb in swordsmanship. Not only that, he also opened the door to accept apprentices and taught a man named Wushu. Chen’s disciple was deeply loved by Li Bai. Later, Li Bai’s son was trapped in the chaotic army, and he couldn’t get out to save him. It was this Wu Chen who went into the chaotic army alone and rescued the teacher’s son.
According to this, Li Bai also wrote a song “Gift to Wu Qi”, praising Wu Chen as a hero with a pure heart.
It is said that only a master with superb martial arts like Li Bai can teach such a heroic apprentice. Biography also mentioned that Li Bai liked swordsmanship and was a martial artist.
Poet Wei Hao wrote “Li Hanlin’s Preface” after Li Bai’s death, there is “Let’s be a hero, kill with a knife”, which proves that Li Bai killed people, and more than one person.
Ten steps to kill a person, a thousand miles without leaving a journey
Li Bai once wrote a murderous song His poem “Xia Ke Xing”, in which “kill a person in ten steps, and leave a thousand miles without leaving. When things are done, go away and hide your name and name”, which is very popular and has been quoted repeatedly by later generations.
In this poem, Li Bai sings praises for the knights Hou Ying and Zhu Hai, and at the same time expresses his feelings. to achieve your own knight’s career. Even if you “die first”, you still need to be “chivalrous.”
This poem is Li Bai’s self-portrait, expressing his admiration for knights and his longing for meritorious deeds. , the pride and ambition are expressed in the poem.
More than a thousand years later, after reading “The Journey of the Knight”, another contemporary literary master, Jin Yong, collided with Li Bai, sympathized with each other, and resonated with each other. The head came into being.
In the Tang Dynasty, if Li Bai wanted to realize his dream of saving the poor and the poor, he must first embark on a career path. Because Li Bai’s family belonged to a merchant’s family, he could not participate in the scientific examination according to the Tang Dynasty law. Even so, it still did not stop Li Bai from pursuing his dream.
The young Li Bai began to travel in Sichuan, read thousands of books and traveled thousands of miles, and also met an expert named Zhao Rui (rui). Zhao Rui came from a famous family and was proficient in classics. as a teacher, noOnly read the classics, but also learn the strategy of running a country.
At this point, Li Bai, who was both civil and military, was full of ambition and waved his hand.
Li Bai, who can’t recite poetry, is not a good swordsman
One night in the first year of Tianbao, In the inn in Chang’an City, Li Bai suddenly heard a knock on the door. When he got up to open the door, he saw an old man with a gray beard standing outside. Facing Li Bai, the old man smiled slightly: “I’m going to congratulate Zhizhang.”
Li Bai was startled and hurriedly bowed down. You must know that He Zhizhang was the Guanglu doctor and secretary supervisor of the current dynasty, equivalent to the current ministerial level. When He Zhizhang first saw Li Bai, he was attracted by his unrestrained and unrestrained appearance. He proposed to read Li Bai’s poems. When Li Bai saw this, he first took out his own “Wuqi Song”. After reading it, He Zhizhang praised “this poem” You can cry ghosts and gods.”
Then, Li Bai handed over his Difficult Road to Shu. He Zhizhang read it in one breath and shouted at Li Bai. It was the “exiled immortal”. Immediately, He Zhizhang, who was in his 70s, pulled Li Bai, who was in his 30s, and went straight to the nearby restaurant to drink.
There are only a thousand cups of wine when they meet their confidants.
When they were about to leave, they realized that they had just left in such a hurry that they forgot to bring the money for the wine. At this time, He Zhizhang laughed and took off the little golden turtle on his body. This is where the story comes from.
Later, He Zhizhang recommended Li Bai to Tang Xuanzong. Tang Xuanzong had already heard about Li Bai, and immediately called him into the palace. From then on, Li Bai became the chief of the central government. Even Li Bai himself believed that his ideal was about to be realized. .
Li Bai entered the palace and was treated as a guest of honor. During this period, Li Bai wrote a large number of palace poems, “Qing Ping Le” is one of them:
However, as time went by, Li Bai slowly discovered that the emperor only asked him to write poems. To put it bluntly, he was a senior secretary of the emperor. It is a decoration of the royal family, and the emperor never talks about politics to him.
Li Bai felt that he was getting closer and closer to the emperor, but his ideal was getting further and further away.
Depressed, he gradually became depressed, and he used alcohol to relieve his worries. According to this, Li Bai’s little brother Du Fu also wrote “The Song of the Eight Immortals in Drinking”, saying that Li Bai:
That’s it , Within a few years, Li Bai was given gold to return home by the emperor, which ended the drunkenness in the capital. But he was not discouraged, and with the open-mindedness of “I am born with talent, I will come back when my daughter is gone”, he started to rectify his mood again, and lingered in the mountains and rivers.
During his travels, Li Bai wrote a large number of well-known poems, either lyrical, expressive, bold, or graceful, laughing and scolding.
Li Bai put all his hopes and aspirations, disappointments and dreams on the tip of his pen. He pushed Chinese poetry to its peak without realizing it.
A lifetime of unrestrained love and freedom, even if you don’t belong to the Eight Great Families
In the Chinese literary world, it is very I like to do various rankings, such as the “Eight Great Masters of the Tang and Song Dynasties” in the history of literature.
Then why was Mr. Taibai not selected as one of the “Eight Great Masters of the Tang and Song Dynasties”?
You must know that the initiator of the “Eight Great Masters of the Tang and Song Dynasties” was Zhu You of the Ming Dynasty. He compiled a collection of essays – “The Collected Works of Mr. Six”, because he put Su Xun, Su Shi and Su Zhe together. In the middle and late Ming Dynasty, Tang Shunzhi’s “Wenbian” only included the prose of these eight authors.
Finally, Mao Kun, a prose writer in the Ming Dynasty, re-arranged the Collected Works of the Eight Masters and the Eight Masters of the Tang and Song Dynasties, and finally determined the name of the Eight Masters of the Tang and Song Dynasties. The eight people are Han Yu, Liu Zongyuan, Ouyang Xiu, Zeng Gong, Wang Anshi, plus “Three Su”. All are famous prose writers.
So, to be precise, the full name of “Eight Great Masters of Tang and Song Dynasties” should be “Eight Masters of Tang and Song Prose”. Moreover, these eight are not only famous in the literary world, but also famous in politics.
As a “poetry fairy” Li Bai, and Li Bai’s main achievement is poetry, he has no political achievements, and naturally he was not shortlisted.
However, this did not affect Li Bai’s status as “one spit is half a prosperous Tang Dynasty”.
Li Bai’s contribution to literature is not limited by any name, and his achievements naturally do not need to be with others go to juxtaposition.
It’s just too naive and hard to get into the drama
History has proven with countless facts: , People with great ambitions are difficult to make achievements in the political world, and Li Bai is just one of them.
Because, Li Bai, who has a dream of a knight, is too naive.
He loves landscapes and spends most of his life on the road. He is bold and unpretentious. Compared with the politicians who hide their murderous intentions in the courtroom, Li Bai is frank and upright, never hiding his emotions, and his emotions are all on his face.
Also because of Li Bai’s innocence , which caused him to make a mistake in judging the current situation, so that he stood on the wrong team in his later years and assisted King Yong. If Guo Ziyi hadn’t asked for his life, it is estimated that he would have been beheaded by the imperial court.
From a guest of the imperial court to a prisoner of labor reform in Yelang, Li Bai experienced the situation of ice and fire again. My dream was almost shattered.
However, the god of fate couldn’t bear to treat him like this. In the second year of his exile, it coincided with a severe drought in Guanzhong.
As expected of Li Bai, his heart was ecstatic, overflowing from the tip of his pen, standing at the stern of the boat, the song “Early Hair White Emperor City”, the light boat has passed ten thousand mountains.
Fate made a face at him, which made Li Bai burst into tears.
At this time, Li Bai was already an old man in his 60s. He had to go to his uncle Li Yangbing, who was the county magistrate in Dangtu.
In AD 762, it is said that the moon was like water that night, 62-year-old Li Bai was boating on the river, raising a glass to invite the bright moon, looking back on his life, looking at his ambitions, he pulled out the Longquan sword behind him and stared at it for a long time. , but jumped, turned into moonlight and left.
In the distance, there is a singing voice:
In the past in Chang’an drunk with flowers and willows,
Five lords and seven nobles shared a glass of wine.
Seven shores far away in front of the nobles,
Merry is willing to lag behind others.
Where is Li Bai? People have been looking for Mr. Taibai who “drinked wildly and sang in the air, and who was arrogant and domineering” back then.
I think Li Bai has always been there. You see, he is immortal and has been dancing drunk for thousands of years…
