王粲 Wang Can

王粲 Wang Can
Wang Can (177–217),[1][2] courtesy name Zhongxuan, was a politician, scholar and poet who lived in the late Eastern Han Dynasty. He contributed greatly to the establishment of laws and standards during the founding days of the vassal kingdom of Wei – the forerunner of the state of Cao Wei in the Three Kingdoms period – under Cao Cao. For his literary achievements, Wang Can was ranked among the Seven Scholars of Jian'an (建安七子).

Wang Can was also renowned for his eidetic memory. Chen Shou's Records of the Three Kingdoms described an incident where Wang Can was watching a game of weiqi. Someone accidentally knocked into the board and scattered the pieces. Wang Can then placed the pieces back to their original positions based on memory.

七哀诗 Seven Sorrows

Author: -- 王粲 Wang Can
西京乱无象,
The Western Capital in woe:
豺虎方遘患。
Nowhere but wolves and tigers go.
复弃中国去,
I leave the central land again,
委身适荆蛮。
And go off to southern plain.
亲戚对我悲,
Facing me, kin and parents grieve;
朋友相追攀。
Following me, friends will not leave.
出门无所见,
What do I see out city gate?
白骨蔽平原。
White bones strew the plain desolate.
路有饥妇人,
A starving woman cannot feed
抱子弃草间。
Her child and lays it in the weed.
顾闻号泣声,
She looks back at its wailing sound,
挥涕独不还。
And goes in tears, not turning round.
未知身死处,
"I know not how long I'll survive.
何能两相完?
Can I keep both of us alive?"
驱马弃之去,
I whip my horse and leave them there;
不忍听此言。
To hear such words I cannot bear.
南登霸陵岸,
I go south on Royal Tomb's crest,
回首望长安。
And gaze back on Capital West.
悟彼下泉人,
How could a patriot from it part?
喟然伤心肝。
I heave a sigh with broken heart.
