Plant image category
“Er Yan” in the Song Dynasty was an important figure in the lyrics of the early Song Dynasty. Younger Yan's lyrics not only inherited the essence of his father's thoughts, but also had his own unique opinions. In Yan Jidao's “Xiaoshan Ci”, a large number of plant image categories were used, and the technique of borrowing things to express the author's sadness of recalling the past and regretting to leave. Although “Xiaoshan Ci” is sincere and elegant, readers can still experience a faint sadness from it. In the eyes of predecessors, Xiaoshan is good at romance, and his lyrics and works are all “Yan Ci”, but from the perspective of modern cultural environment and appreciation, “Xiaoshan Ci” is not a feast of writing and art feasts and sad works. The plants used in the words do not carry a superficial meaning, but are endowed with the author's personal feelings. This article explores the origin and historical evolution of the category of “plant image”, and its pessimistic aesthetic connotation and impact.
