ABSTRACT

The Liu Shizhong's work, “ShangGaojiansi” consists of the first and the second part. The first part describes the painful lives of the people caused by the severe drought that occurred at the time. And the second part, various evils due to changes in the monetary system are described. Therefore, through these two Sanqu, you can see the chaotic Yuan society vividly. The author Liu Shizhong created “ShangGaojiansi” to praise Gaojiansi for his dedication to the people. However, this work different from the expression of playing the world, avoiding the world, and lamenting the world expressed in the existing Sanqu of Yuan Dynasty, expanded the subject of Sanqu of Yuan Dynasty, and escaped the restrictions of the length of a sentence in the formal part. Above all, it can be said that it marked a milestone in the history of the Sanqu as an excellent work that showed the criticism of the evils of society at the time and the author's own political arguments to remove them.
