Collection of Zhejiang Provincial Museum: "Poems of General Pei" by Yan Zhenqing, Zhongyi Hall of the Southern Song Dynasty

Copied copy, without signature and date. Cursive script, a poem.

This post is also known as the "Poetry Volume for the Northern Expedition of General Pei" and was first seen in the engraving of "Zhongyi Tang Post" by Liu Yuangang in the Southern Song Dynasty. According to Huang Benji's "The Collected Works of Yan Lu Gong·A Case of Presenting to General Pei" (Siku Preparatory Edition): "General Pei is also Pei ." "New Book of Tang·Li Bai Biography": "Li Bai was ordered to sing poems by Emperor Wenzong, and Pei  was to dance." The sword, written in Zhang Xu's cursive script, is one of the three unique skills. 'When he met Sun Beifu, the governor of Youzhou, he was surrounded by Xi. He stood up with his sword and raised his arrow four times. During the reign of Emperor Ruizong, see "New Book of Tang: Biography of Turks". 

This calligraphy was not included in the collection of inscriptions from the Song Dynasty to the Qing Dynasty, but it was highly praised by Ming Wang Shizhen, Zhang Yingwen and Qing Wang Shu. Today's critics can't agree on what is good or bad.

There are two types of "General Pei's Poems" that have been handed down from generation to generation. One is a rubbing of Yuan Gang's "Zhongyi Tang Tie" from the Southern Song Dynasty collected in the Zhejiang Provincial Museum, and the other is an ink copy collected by the Palace Museum in Beijing. The content of the two writings is the same, but the calligraphy style is very different.

Ink version and paper version in the collection of the Palace Museum, Beijing. No signature or written date, 21 lines, 93 words.

The reviewer believes that the ink copy is obviously not authentic. Sha Menghai believes that in the version of "Zhongyi Tangtie", "the wind god died in the "Cao Zhi Temple Stele", which is so majestic that no one but Lu Gong could do it."

Poems by Yan Zhenqing, General Pei

General Pei is the great monarch of Liuhe, and his fierce general Qing Jiugai. The war horses are like dragons and tigers, and the mausoleum is so majestic. The general is approaching the northern wasteland, and he is distinguished by his talents. The sword dances like lightning, lingering and returning with the wind. Climb high and look at Tianshan Mountain, the white clouds are facing Cui Wei. Enter the battle to defeat the arrogant prisoners, and your majesty is thunderous. A hundred horses will be knocked down with one shot, and ten thousand men will be driven away by another shot. The Huns did not dare to fight and called each other to return. Success is rewarded to the emperor, and Lintai can be painted.
