Abstract as per original application
(English/Chinese):
清代乾嘉兩朝國勢強盛,考據學盛行,流而為詩歌,出現了考訂詩的寫作潮流。考訂詩寫作潮流維持了約一百年,這種詩歌以各種文物的考訂為主題,重視資料的爬梳選擇,大多以古詩及歌行體寫作。詩歌史和詩歌批評對以學為詩多予批評,認為其損害詩歌的形象性和抒情特點,故一直排斥這種詩歌;要麼一面倒批評,要麼讓它們在詩歌史中失踪。然而,一種詩體能興盛百年,自應有各方面的條件造成,僅憑依既定的詩歌史大敘述是無法反映它的真實價值。畢竟,這種詩歌在當時是跨流派(浙派的厲鶚、杭世駿,肌理派的翁方綱,性靈派的袁枚、楊芳燦)、跨地域(北京、廣州、杭州等地)、跨階層(名臣如王昶、紀昀,學者如桂馥、黃易,布衣文人如黃景仁等)如此廣泛地流行。而且,考訂詩出現在物質文化極為豐盛的乾嘉時期,不同的「物」在考訂詩和文圈中也有不同意義;以具體個案研究引入不同的研究視角,當能藉此觀察物質、人與文學的關係,對清代詩歌的價值產生新的理解。
During two prosperous periods in the Qing Dynasty, the Qianlong and Jiaqing, textual research was prevalent, and textual-research poetry became a widely popular art. The trend of writing textual research poetry arose, and such a trend was sustained for about one hundred years. This kind of poem was based on the textual-research of various cultural relics, which emphasized the selection of materials. Such poems were mostly written in ancient poetry or song style. Scholars of poetry history and criticism often criticized this act of "academic-stuffed poetry," believing that it damaged the image and lyrical characteristics of poetry. Such acts of treating poetry had always been rejected, and such rejection worried those who practised it in such a way that it eventually disappeared in the history of poetry. However, for such a kind of poetry that can flourish for a hundred years, it must have been sustained by various conditions. The grand narrative of poetry history alone cannot reflect its real value. After all, textual-research poetry was considered as cross-genre (Li-E and Hang Shi-jun of Zhejiang school, Weng Fang-gang of Jili school, Yuan Mei and Yang Fang-can of Xingling school), cross-regional (Beijing, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, etc.), cross-class (famous officials such as Wang Chang and Ji Yun, scholars such as Gui Fu and Huang Yi, commoner writers such as Huang Jingren, etc.). The poetry was widely known and distributed. Moreover, textual-research poetry appeared in the Qian-Jia period when the material culture was vibrant, where different "things/objects" contained different meanings in textual-research poems and literary circles. Aimed at examining the relationship between objects, humans, and literature, a new understanding of the value of poetry produced in the Qing Dynasty will become apparent after various research perspectives with specific case studies in this proposed study are completed.
