The Merits and Demerits of Shen Deqian's Poetic Study and Its Historical Status
- 2016年 
【中文摘要】相对沈德潜的名声和地位来说,沈德潜诗学的理论贡献和批评成就往往让人感觉名不符实。实际上,沈德潜的格调观念及相关诗学理论,足以包括古典诗学的传统观念和一般倾向,像他所编的历代诗歌选本一样,历来被视为代表古典诗学理想的正宗。即使从独创性的角度来考量,沈德潜诗学中也有很多独到的理论命题和批评见解。如果从理论、批评及诗歌史三个层面分别来考察沈德潜的诗论,就会看到其中不乏有价值的理论命题、通透的批评眼光和犀利的诗史见解,得出一个异于学界通行看法的评价。 【Abstract】Shen Deqian's contribution to poetic theory and his accomplishments in poetry criticism appear to be out of proportion to the reputation and status that he enjoyed. As a matter of fact, Shen's “class” concept and his poetic theory encompass the traditional concepts and general tendencies of classical poetics and are regarded as the quintessential ideals of classical poetics, very much in the same way the collections of poems from the previous dynasties that he compiled were viewed. And there is no shortage of originality in his theoretical theses and critical reviews. Examining Shen's poetic study from the perspectives of theory, critique and poetic history, we can find some valuable theses, critical insights and profound views on poetic history which allow us to make an assessment quite different from the mainstream opinion in academia.
