On the boundary between narration and lyricism of pre-modern Chinese literature
From a comprehensive perspective of the development and evolution of Chinese literature, we can see that narration and lyricism have gone through the course of commensalism, divisions, growth and decline, and mutual permeation. The boundary between narration and lyricism is constantly fluxing and changing, without a clear-cut definition. From primitive religions to performative writings such as The Book of Songs, narration and lyricism were originally co-existing. During the Spring and Autumn Period, the Warring States Period and the Han Dynasty, the narration in The Book of Songs began to separate from analogies and symbols. To be more precise, narration as a technique was separated from narration as a style (fu), and the literary genre fu was separated from the other literary genres. Narration and lyricism became divided, and their boundary became clearer. After Wei and Jin Dynasties, the lyric genre, represented by poetry, and the narrative genre, represented by novels and dramas, developed in separate ways. The boundary between narration and lyricism is mainly represented in stylistic classification and narration and lyricism were not always distinguished until Ming and Qing Dynasties. While the relationship between narration and lyricism changed, they permeated into each other in some specific genres. Thus, narration and lyricism are not static and dichotomous concepts, but with fluxing and changing boundaries.
