ABSTRACT

Both Du Fu(杜甫) and Li Seak(李穡) used to have a variety of illness experience, and created a lot of poems with the theme about disease. The poem related to disease is a special research perspective. This paper is based on this perspective to do acomparative study of Du Fu and Li Seak's poetry literature through comparing the difference and resemblance of the poems about diseases. First of all, we collated the works of Du Fu and Li Seak, and selected the disease theme poems to understand the whole situation of the poems. Then compare the similarities and differences between the two poets in their literary expression and poetic style. The result of the comparison is that there are some similarities between the two poets in their literary expressions, especially in the use of words and literary quotation, as well as describing the sick animals to refer to their own situations. But from the point of poetry style, there are a lot of differences, which mainly reflected in the following points. Li Seak's disease poetry has more nuanced description of daily life. And expressing the emotional about disease as well as focusing on the philosophical thinking. Also the part of pain description did not show too much sorrow. The reason of the similarities and differences of the disease poetry mainly in the Song dynasty poetry style reflected in Li Seak’s poems. Li Seak tried to use literature to record life, and express the philosophical thinking, and pursuit of a quiet and flat style of poetry. At the same time, Li Seak accepted Du Fu’s literature as the representative of Tang dynasty literature mainly in the poet vocabulary and literary expression. Consequently a fusion poetry style of Tang and Song Dynasty literature was formed. The other two common points of Du Fu and Li Seak’s poetry is in the Confucian value of patriotism, and in the purpose of modesty and self-mockery, both of them used an expression of claiming ill health in their social communication poem works.
