ABSTRACT

“Poem without a title” by Li Shangyin, in classical chinese poetry, are featured by pursuit of desolate romance, intolerable loneliness, sad atmosphere, aspiration, obscure and abundant symbolizations, refined language among which the No title Poems are the most extraordinary and thought evoking. Focusing mostly on love, these poems represent suppressed Ego which is caused by pent-up feelings. And these poems bear quite obviously implication of modernism in the view of present literary theories. Most conventional critics had attempted to interpret even the most obscure poetic allusions in Li Shangyin’s No Title poems as a mirror of his private and official life. Viewing them only at this angle is an impressionistic attitude that has logical problems in itself, because it is not based on objective and tangible evidence and thus in danger of being subjective and prejudicial. This paper will go on more step further than this conventional method and attempt to approach Li Shangyin’s poetic world in a more substantial way of basing it’s argument on the proper interpretations of his poems itself using methods of psychoanalysis of Freud. Freudian school have made a concrete analyse on Id Ego Superego. And this psychoanalysis are widely used for the analysis of the inner world of literary work and seem to be an effective method to draw near to the world of spirit of Li Shangyin. This paper contains four part. 1. Clash of Id and Ego 2. Sublimation of libido 3. Free association 4. Dream and attainment of desire.
