Chen Lin (died 217), courtesy name Kongzhang (孔璋), was a minister, author and poet in the late Eastern Han Dynasty. Possessed of great literary talents, Chen became known as one of the "Seven Scholars of Jian'an". During his career, he served under General-in-Chief He Jin, in the imperial court.
In Luo Guanzhong's historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Cao was having a headache while the declaration was being read but his headache was gone after hearing it. After Yuan's defeat, Chen was captured by Cao, who reprimanded Chen for insulting his elders and ancestors in the declaration he wrote earlier. However, Cao spared Chen's life and instructed him to read the declaration again before Yuan's grave.
Chen was later appointed as an official to serve Cao Cao, as Cao admired his literary talent. Cao once said: "Reading Chen Lin's scripts heals my headaches much better than others."
Chen Lin's surviving literary works include his literary yuefu (also transcribed yüeh-fu) poem, translated by Wai-lim Yip as "Water the Horses at a Breach in the Great Wall".
