The scholars in the Song Dynasty who researched Poems argued intensely over
the value of Prologues to Poems. These scholars were then divided into two
scholars–New and Old. Fan Chu-Yi, an extremist of the Old School, completely
believes Sih Ma-Cian’s saying of Confucius’ deletion of many poems in Poems. He
thinks that Confucius’ deletion must embody profound significance of praise and
criticism, and he absolutely respects Prologues. He also thinks that Confucius wrote
“Great Prologue,” whose importance would be like that of “Wun Yan” to The Book of
Changes, and that Confucius even involved in the creation of the whole work of
Prologues. Therefore, he thinks that there is no other way to understand Poems
without reading Prologues. In A Complement to Poems, Fan intends to supply more
information to complete the work of Mao Kung, who annotated and interpreted Poems
under the influence of Confucius and, thus, was often labeled as being out of date.
This effort has also made his significance in the study of Poems neglected. In fact,
according to the development of history, the motivation of Fan’s admiration of Poems
and Prologues shown in his work was resist the intense academic trend of doubting Poems and abolishing Prologues in the hope of protecting the academic convention, a
traditional research on Poems since the Han dynasty. However, in terms of
intertextuality, Fan might not be an opponent of the scholars of the New School.
According to this research, all the researcher of Poems, who regard Poems as a work
of classical literature, stand on the same side, and the only difference lies in their
different definition and degrees of acceptability of Poems.
