Elegance of Su Shi’s Bantering Ci
HU Meng-die;School of Literature, Shandong University;
Bantering Ci had always been regarded as a kind of vulgar Ci just for joking. Su Shi injected extensive connotations into bantering Ci and added elegance into it by aestheticizing secular life. Meanwhile, Su Shi also integrated personal interest and social care into bantering Ci, which not only showed a relaxed attitude in expressing personal emotions, but also played the social satirical function of the works with a humorous tone. Su Shi's bantering Ci got rid of the joke meaning of the scholar and officialdom, and turned to discuss social problems. By combining the responsibility of the scholar-officials with the satirical tradition, Su Shi's bantering Ci shows elegant feelings and had a profound impact.
