阮籍 Ruan Ji

阮籍 Ruan Ji

Ruan Ji (Chinese: 阮籍; pinyin: Ruǎn Jí; Wade–Giles: Juan Chi; 210–263) was a poet and musician who lived in the late Eastern Han Dynasty and Three Kingdoms period of Chinese history. He was one of the Seven Sages of the Bamboo Grove. The guqin melody, Jiukuang (酒狂 "Drunken Ecstasy", or "Wine Mad") is believed to have been composed by him.

Ruan Ji had a many-sided personality, but poetry brought him the glory and fame of being the greatest poet of his epoch. Liu Se gave a classical evaluation to the place of poetry in the life of Ruan Ji. Comparing two geniuses of the 3rd century, Ji Kang and Ruan Ji, he wrote: ”Ji Kang expressed in his compositions the intellect of an outstanding thinker, Ruan Ji put all his spirit and all his life into his poems. Their voices are different, but they sound in full harmony! Their wings are not similar, but they are flying in absolute unity!” Zhong Rong in his work “The Categories of Poems” ascribes Ruan Ji's work to the highest rank of poetry: ”…his poetry can strengthen one’s temper and spirit, it can cast a deep thoughtful mood… but the meaning of his poetry is hard for understanding.” Mikuchi Fukanaga sees in Ruan Ji's poetry a unique attempt to explain the experience called satori in Japanese Buddhism.

咏怀八十二首·其一 Reflexions (I)

Author: -- 阮籍 Ruan Ji
夜中不能寐,
I cannot sleep deep in the night;
起坐弹鸣琴。
I rise and sit to play my lute.
薄帷鉴明月,
Thin curtains mirror the moon bright;
清风吹我襟。
Clear breezes tug my lapels mute.
孤鸿号外野,
A lonely swan shrieks over the plain;
翔鸟鸣北林。
Hovering birds cry in north wood.
徘徊将何见?
What do I see, pacing in vain?
忧思独伤心。
My heart is grieved in solitude.
