Collection of Qu Yuan (Chinese classical literature series) (中国古典文学基本丛书:屈原集校注)

By 金开诚

屈原在九章抽思中说“结微情以陈词兮,矫以遗夫美人”,说明他的有些辞作本为“献诗陈志”而作,并不限于个人抒发感情。史记列傅说屈原“存君兴国而欲反复之,一篇之中三致志焉”;下面又说“令尹子兰闻之大怒”。道一事实也说明屈原辞谁多有违碍之言,但在当时却并不保密,而是在社会上有所流传的。又屈原列传说:“屈原既死之后,楚 有宋主、唐勒、景差之徒者,皆好辞而以赋见称;然皆祖屈原之从容辞令,终莫敢直谏。”这进一步证明了屈原辞流传的社会性。可以想见,屈辞在楚国人士中的影响是不小的;至于宋玉、唐勒、景差等楚辞作者,既然“皆祖屈原之从容辞令”,当然更会致力于屈辞的收集、整理、保管和傅习。另外,还应充分估计到屈原辞通过民间渠道流传于后世的可能性。
