Ci and the city always interact with each other through the intermediation of Ci poets. Ci poets are the subject of Ci creation, also are the subject of urban space. City, as the living space of Ci poets, affects contents and life feelings of their life, participates in individual personality construction and concept formation, and transforms into an organic part of the work space. Even if the Ci poets live in the city as a whole, their social and cultural identity, political and economic status and other factors determine their living space, thus different status of the Ci poets form different types of living space. Ci poets write the city based on their own spatial experience, so their urban writing has the meaning of expressing different urban spatial connotations. This study argues the bias of the existing research on the relationship between Ci and cities on the factors of “downtown” and “townspeople”, and pays attention to the urban living space and the culture of the scholar-officials. Taking Yan Shu as a case, this study examines how the upper scholar-officials lived and felt in certain urban space, and what kind of lyrics they created, in order to obtain various angles of understanding of the relationship between lyrics and cities.
