Yu Xin’s life and works : a fragment in Zhongguo zhonggu wenxue shi
Yu Xin 庾信 (513 - 581 CE) had been a court official in the Southern Liang dynasty and wrote palace style poetry before he was confined to the non-Sinitic Norther Zhou dynasty. Despite the respect he received from its officials and nobles, he wrote his internal conflict, distress, and forthcoming resign into his poetry and prose, including “Shangxin fu” 傷心賦 (Rhapsody on a Broken Heart), “Xiaoyuan fu” 小園賦 (Rhapsody on a Small Garden) , and “Kushu fu” 枯樹賦 (Rhapsody on a Withered Tree) which he wrote during the first three years of his confinement as a diplomatic envoy. Yu’s masterpiece written in 569 CE, “Ai Jiangnan fu” 哀江南賦 (Rhapsody Lamenting the South) chronicles the Southern Liang dynasty from prosperity to decline, and its literary elegance and intricacy has received high praise. Despite his resign, ethnic amalgamation was the mainstream at the time. Yu acknowledged the Northern Zhou dynasty ruled by the Xianbei people and was willing to collaborate with its ruling class. However, the nostalgia and reminiscence in his works show his ardent love for the culture in China proper. Yu’s works, including the epitaphs he wrote, are of great value in understanding the grand historical development in the Chinese medieval time.
