Recently researchers have gradually turned their attention to the achievements of the Classical Study in the Ming Dynasty. Ji Ben’s Commentary on the Book of Songs: General Introduction is a significant work in the history of the Book of Songs hermeneutics.
There are about four hundred thousand words in The Commentary on the Book of Songs: General Introduction, lengthy enough for Ji Ben to cite more scholarly works besides providing new interpretations. Commenting on Ji Ben, the Abstracts of the General Catalogue in the Si-ku Quan-shu（四庫全書總目提要）has this to say: “[Ji Ben] would rather say new things than plagiarize his precursors. He develops his own views through citing and negotiating his sources.” I agree with this statement in principle, but this paper does not intend to discuss how Ji Ben interprets the three hundred poems in the Book of Songs, but what he believes to be of equal significance, the two-volume General Interoduction. It's a pity Si-ku Quan-shu’s comment does not fit them.
The Commentary on the Book of Songs: General Introduction represents Ji Ben's discussion on the basic issues in the Book of Songs hermeneutics. Examining the overall achievement of this part of his life's work, this paper gives the researchers of the Ming Dynasty Classical Study ten points of conclusion as dependable reference.
