- Whether Song Yu was a disciple or student of Qu Yuan has become a mystery since the Han Dynasty. According to Sima Qian’s “Records of the Historian · Biography of Qu Yuan and Jia Yi”, “after the death of Qu Yuan, there were Song Yu, Tang Le and Jing Chai in Chu. All of them were good at literature, by which they were known by people. They all followed the euphemistic writing style of Qu Yuan, and always dared not advise directly to the monarch.” It is said that Song Yu was the first person known by his Fu after Qu Yuan’s death. However, Wang Yi, who was only one hundred years away from Sima Qian, said in “Chuci Zhangjiu · Jiubian”: “Song Yu, Qu Yuan’s disciple, also showed compassion for his teacher, loyal but exiled, wrote ‘Jiubian’ to describe the aspirations of his teacher.” Wang Yi said Song Yu was a disciple of the disciple of Qu Yuan. Sima Qian and Wang Yi said differently. Therefore, it caused a dispute whether Song Yu was a disciple or a student of Qu Yuan. Based on the text analysis of Song Yu’s “Jiubian” and Qu Yuan’s “Jiuge”, this paper explores the relationship between the content and style of the two works, and combs the clues of this problem.
