班婕妤 Lady Ban

班婕妤 Lady Ban

Consort Ban (c. 48 BCE? — c. 6 BCE), or Ban Jieyu, (Chinese: 班婕妤; pinyin: Bān Jiéyú; Wade–Giles: Pan Chieh-yü, and also known as Lady Pan) was a Chinese scholar and poet during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 23 CE). 'Jieyu' (婕妤) was a title for a third-rank palace lady, one rank below concubines (bin, who figured as second-rank palace ladies);[1] her personal name is not known.

Poems
She "is accredited with two fu poems"[4] but is best known for the famous poem attributed to her ("Yuan Ge Xing" or "Song of Resentment"), in which she compares herself to a discarded autumn fan. It deals with her sorrow at having been abandoned by the Emperor and is written in the yuefu style of poetry. However, there is a certain historical doubt about the attribution of this song to her, especially since it is not mentioned in her grand-nephew Ban Gu's autobiography of her.[5] The poems attributed to her, or written in her persona, have remained in circulation in the many centuries after her death.

怨歌行 To an Autumn Fan

Author: -- 班婕妤 Lady Ban
新裂齐纨素,
Fresh from the weaver's loom, oh silk so white,
皎洁如霜雪。
You are as clear as frost,as snow as bright.
裁作合欢扇,
Fashioned into a fan, token of love,
团圆似明月。
You are as round as brilliant moon above.
出入君怀袖,
In my lord's sleeve when in or out he goes,
动摇微风发。
You wave and shake, and a gentle breeze blows.
常恐秋节至,
I am afraid when comes the autumn day,
凉飙夺炎热。
And chilling wind drives summer heat away,
弃捐箧笥中,
You'll be discarded to a lonely place,
恩情中道绝。
And with my lord you'll fall into disgrace.
