The background of Wei Meng’s and Wei Xuancheng’s poetry and treating Chinese classics as poems
Wei Meng 韋孟 and Wei Xuancheng 韋玄 are well-regarded Lu shi 魯詩 scholars from the Western Han dynasty. Their poems also demonstrate their identity as classicists. In later scholarship, Wei Meng and Wei Xuancheng are often juxtaposed to highlight these achievements. An examination of “Zai zou shi” 在鄒詩 (Poem Written in Zou), a poem commonly attributed to Wei Meng, however, will reveal that Wei’s reputation of being a classicist and a poet has to do with the bureaucracy of Han dynasty principalities and consequently testifies against his authorship. Furthermore, the authorship of “Fengjian shi” 諷諫詩 (An Irony Poem), another poem famously attributed to Wei Meng has also been questioned since Ban Gu 班固 in the Eastern Han dynasty. Wei’s loyal figure depicted in the poem is different from historical records, and this poem also shares a high degree of similarity with Wei Xuancheng’s “Zihe shi” 自劾言寺 (A Self-reflection Poem) and “Jie shi zisun shi” 戒示子孫詩 (A Poem of Admonishment to the Descendents) , which is beyond the explanation of imitation. In particular, “A Self-reflection Poem” and “An Irony Poem” quoted classics Shang shu 尚書 (Book of Documents) and ZAou 周易 (Book of Change) frequently, which shows a closed system within the established classics. The purpose of a poet, I argue, is more than lyricism, but to recompose classics toward his own use in which texts are given new directions and new life.
