   Suo Jingshu's "Ode to the Teacher" volume, paper version, chapter cursive script, 21.2cm in length and 127.8cm in width.

  Suo Jing was a famous calligrapher in the Jin Dynasty. "Xuanhe Shupu" records that Suo Jing was outstanding when he was young. Suo Jing's calligraphy was famous for Zhang Cao. His calligraphy is "like the wind blowing, the birds of prey are flying, like the solitary pine on the snowy ridge, and the dangerous stone on the glacier", which is very steep and powerful. Suo Jing has a very high status in the history of Chinese calligraphy. The history commented that his calligraphy was "in line with Xi (Wang Xizhi) and Xian (Wang Xianzhi)", and "Ode to the Master" is the only solitary work of his achievements.

  "Ode to the Master" is the only ink trace of Suo Jing discovered so far. This work has been handed down orderly since the Tang Dynasty. In 1922, the abdicated Qing Emperor Puyi took the volume out of the palace in the name of rewarding Pujie, and it was lost among the people after 1945.

Interpretation of "Ode to the Teacher":

  The vastness of the heavens descended to the Han Dynasty as the foundation for the opening of the business, the praise of the gods and gods, and the Wuyao Xiaoying

  Su Ling night sighs, the imperial fortune has not been granted, Wanbao Zenghuan, the twelve calendars, the destiny is easy

  If Xirong is not going well and Dongyi is rebellious, he ordered the general to give the male halberd to General Huanhuan

  Inspired by the real world, Yun Wen Yun Wu, Ming poetry reading ceremony, charter of hundreds of works, regular script for the world

  In the past, in Mengjin, only the teacher respected his father, Su Yan lived in Hunyi District, and the common people changed their minds

  Changing the wind to change Chu, and attacking the hunks, as far as Taiyuan, the poets still lament the difficulty of singing

  General Kuang, at the extreme edge of the poor domain, the drum never stops, the flag never stops (the upper left part of the word is "car")

  I left my teacher in Pixijiang, the emperor gave me a farewell, and rode in a yellow chariot, saying that I remembered the old labor

  En deep in Weiyang, Jie Gui has cut the soil and rewarded the honor, now I am the general, Qi Tushang County

  "Ode to Master" has been handed down orderly since the Tang Dynasty. In the Tang Dynasty, it was collected by Princess Taiping. In the Song Dynasty, it was collected by the court during the Shaoxing period. In the Ming Dynasty, it was collected by the famous collector Wang Shimao. Emperor Qianlong once included it in "Sanxitang Fatie". In 1922, Pu Yi, the abdicated Qing emperor, took the volume out of the palace in the name of rewarding Pu Jie, and it was lost among the people after 1945. In July 2003, it suddenly appeared at China Guardian 2003 Spring Auction, which caused an uproar in the industry.

  According to the bibliography and connoisseurship stamps, this edition is called the "Shaoxing edition" and "Ode to the Master". According to Mi Youren's postscript, it is mostly identified as a Sui sage book, and it is also believed to be written by Suojing in the Western Jin Dynasty or Liang Xiaoziyun in the Southern Dynasty, or even written by people in the Tang Dynasty. The circulation situation is roughly as follows: Princess Taiping, Li Yue, and Wang Ya successively appraised and collected in the Tang Dynasty; entered the inner palace during the Shaoxing period of the Southern Song Dynasty; returned to Wang Shimao in the Ming Dynasty; On the ninth day of the first lunar month, Pu Yi took it out of the palace in the name of rewarding Pu Jie. After 1945, it was scattered and hidden among the people for more than 60 years; it was acquired by an auction company in 2003, and the Palace Museum bought it back with a huge sum of money.

  "Ode to the Master" has been preserved in two copies as the Zhangcao ink that has been circulated. One is the "Shaoxing version" and the other is the "Xuanhe version". "Jingshu" and "Xuanhe" ladle seals are generally identified as the Suojing book of the Western Jin Dynasty, and some people think it is the book of Liang Xiaoziyun, through the "Xuanhe Shupu" in the Northern Song Dynasty, the "Qianshantang Calligraphy and Painting Notes" by Wenjia in the Ming Dynasty, and Bian Yongyu in the Qing Dynasty. "Shigutang Calligraphy and Painting Collection" and other books are described. Its circulation is roughly as follows: it entered Xuanhe Neifu in the Northern Song Dynasty, and it seems to have passed from Yan Song's family to Wenpeng's in the Ming Dynasty, and then sold it in Xiang Yuanbian, and it did not exist after entering the Qing Dynasty. The "Xuanhe version" was engraved in Dong Qichang's "Xihongtang Tie", and Wang Kentang's "Pomozhai Tie" was also engraved. Today only the rubbings of the fatie remain.

  The Shaoxing version of "Ode to the Master" is an anonymous inscription. Later generations believe that it was written by Suo Jing in the Western Jin Dynasty or Liang Xiao Ziyun in the Southern Dynasty, or that it was written by Sui Xian or Tang Dynasty. Judging from the seals appraised and collected by Tang Taiping Princess, Li Yue, Wang Ya and others in this painting, the writing should not be later than the early Tang Dynasty. According to Song Mi Youren's postscript, it should be more credible as "Sui Xianshu". This book belongs to the typical cursive style of early chapters. The "silkworm head and phoenix tail" has traces of official script, and the "silver hook and tail" has the characteristics of cursive script. Possession, simple and elegant, is the traditional form of cursives established and standardized since the Six Dynasties, but with a slightly more elegant momentum, it is roughly similar to the cursive style in Sui Zhiyong's "Thousand Characters on True Grass". Therefore, it is appropriate to designate it as the Sui people's book.

  Jiang Kui of the Song Dynasty: Generally speaking, when learning cursive script, you should first learn from Zhang Zhi, Huang Xiang, Suo Jing Zhang Cao, etc., so that the structure is smooth and the writing is active. ("Continued Books")

  Yuan Liu Youding: Suo Jing, Wei Guan and his son Heng all learned from Zhang Boying. Guan said to himself that I got Boying tendons, Heng got Boying bones, and Jing got Boying meat. ("Yanji Note")

  Ruan Yuan of the Qing Dynasty: "Book of Tang" said that Xun started to study Wang Xi's book, and then passed it dangerously, because he named his style; he tasted the stele written by Suo Jing, and stayed for three days before leaving. Husband's "Book of Tang" claims that beginners who learn Xizhi follow what the emperor likes, and they also have the right words; The two families of Gai Zhong and Wei are the same in the north and the south. The entrustment originated from Suojing, but only the ancestors of the northern school. ("Nanbei Shupai Lun") Ruan Yuan in Qing Dynasty: Cui Yue is as famous as Fan Yang and Lu Chen. ("On the Southern and Northern Calligraphy School")

  Bao Shichen of the Qing Dynasty: The cursive script of Huangxiang and Suojing is bold and dense, which is beyond the reach of the right army. ("Two Oars in a Boat")

  Bao Shichen of the Qing Dynasty: "The Biography of Suo Jing" says: "Both Jing and Wei Guan are famous for their cursive script, and Guan's pen is better than Jing's. However, there is regular script, which is far behind Jing." When I first knew that the cursive was true, it was Han and Jin Prime Ministers. Inheriting the law of grass, Wu Jun's inheritance is not far away, it is not by enlightenment. Yu Qian read "Book of Jin", and in this chapter and sentence, he regarded it as rhetoric, his mind was unclear, and his eyes narrowed. Therefore, when Shizi taught the Dharma, he called it "Zhengmeng". Yu Today is like inheriting the lion's roar. Rejoice and praise, and record it later, so as to appeal to those who share the same aspirations in the future generations of the world. ("Yi Zhou Shuang Ji") Liu Xizai in the Qing Dynasty: Suo You'an divided Li, the predecessors compared it with Wei Dan, Zhong Yao, and Wei Guan, and especially cursive script. His work "Cursive Script" says: "If it is suave and not group, or if it is self-examination, it is normal." But it is suave and full of self-examination, so it is really suave? Suo Jing's book is like a sudden wind, a bird of prey flies away, he is very calm and happy. The commentators push it to be the Northern School, with Ouyang Xin's book as its branch, which is close to true. However, the matter of watching the stele for three days is not enough to quote. ("Art General") Liu Xizai in the Qing Dynasty: Suo Jing and Wei Guan in the Western Jin Dynasty are equally famous for their good books. There is a rumor in Jingben: "Guanbi is better than Jing, but there are regular scripts, which are far inferior to Jing." This is the right view to discuss the importance of the two. Guan's calligraphy was coveted by his father in the first place, and taught by Ziheng in the second place, but Jing was not taught in detail. ("Art Overview") 

    Liu Xizai of the Qing Dynasty: Books have two methods of vibration and photography. Suo Jing's pen is short and long, and he is good at photographing; Lu and Cambodia's writing is getting stronger and stronger, and he is good at vibrating. ("Art Overview")

  Zhou Xinglian in the Qing Dynasty: In the past, someone asked Suo Jing about his brushwork. Suo Jing held the pen with three fingers, closed his eyes and said, "Bold, brave, brave!" ("Lin Chi Guanjian")

  Zhu Hegeng in the Qing Dynasty: The Wei and Jin Dynasties were not far away from the Han Dynasty, so his calligraphy and paintings are natural, revealing the ancient meaning. Suo and Wei belong to one set of two Miao, two Wang Miao traces, and the opening of the heavenly bones. ("Lin Chi Xin Jie")

  Qingkang Youwei: Wang Shizhong commented on Zhang Zhi, Suo Jing, Wei Dan, Zhong Yao, and Erwei Shu, "I can't tell the good from the bad, but I am surprised by their writing power." Si commented on Zhigong. Yuan Ang, Liang Wu, Jianwu, Huaiguan, Sizhen, and Lu Zong must all want to be stronger than A and B, and they will be arrogated at will, and they will grow and grow. ("Guang Yi Zhou Shuang Ji") Kang Youwei of the Qing Dynasty: A detailed look at the cursive scripts of Suo Jing, Wang Dao, You Jun, Da Ling, and Lu Gong. . . Swinging the giant blade to the sky, chopping the formation with a big knife, all of them are based on dangerous strength. If you don't have the momentum to hold a pen, how can you do it? ("Guang Yi Zhou Shuang Ji") Qing Kang Youwei: Jiang Yaozhang is best known as Zhang Zhi, Suo Jing, Huang Xiang Zhang Cao, because it was rare at the time, because of mechanics. ("Guangyi Boat Double Oar")

  Qing Kang Youwei: If you want to go back to the past, you should write chapters, Shi Xiaoshan's "Ode to the Master" is also a good example. (Note: "Ode to the Master", Suo Jingshu.) ("Guangyi Zhou Shuangji")

Officially recruited Xi Sima, Shang Shulang, named Anletinghou, and posthumously called Zhuang.
