In the year of Bu Shun (1613-1644), his courtesy name was Mengshuo and his junior name was Rigui. He was a native of Shengze Town, Wujiang Prefecture (now Wujiang County, Jiangsu Province, today's city) in the late Ming Dynasty. A talented scholar in the late Ming Dynasty who was good at poetry, calligraphy and painting. He is quick-witted and ambitious for the ages. He was wild and unruly throughout his life, but he was deeply influenced by Confucianism and was full of national integrity. He was deeply praised by Dong Sibai (Qichang), Chen Meigong (Jiru) and others. A famous writer, calligrapher and painter in the late Ming Dynasty.
  He has been extremely smart since he was a child. When he was a child, he went to Jiaxing to take the boy examination. The county magistrate read his paper and praised: "It seems like there is no one around, and there are strange people and strange things!" He was immediately ranked first. He once studied Wu Ge in Jiaxing with Chen Meigong, an elder from Huating. After returning home, he lived in Luxiaozhuang, where he was full of guests. Chen Zhongchun and Dong Yuanzai from Songjiang both liked and respected his calligraphy and painting. This Green Xiaozhuang originally had towers and pavilions, and there was always music and bursts of Wu songs. By the time of the Qing Dynasty, it had declined. Tang Zhong visited Luxiaozhuang and left behind a poem: "Throwing away the residual knowledge and river map, I can't distinguish the old Saluo, the ruined temple is now empty of vines, and the Wu □ still sings at the bright moon." . A building built by Bu Shunian behind Luxiaozhuang also has beautiful scenery, with "white poplars surrounding the house and cold shadows dimly glowing". "A corner of the dangerous building leans against the sky, and there are faint flying snails shooting at the eyebrows." He gave this building a strange name "Ghost Watch Tower", and designed it so gloomily that it made people feel like "the souls are full of wandering spirits all over the windows." After he became an adult, he failed repeatedly in the provincial examination, so he became friends with strange people and talented people in Green Xiaozhuang. His behavior was eccentric, and people at the time regarded him as a weirdo. There are many anecdotes about him recorded in "Shenghu Chronicles". Not only are the poems interesting, but the calligraphy and painting are also lively. When he was happy, he often splashed with brush and ink. His paintings were quite valuable at the time, and he flatly refused when others offered him large sums of money. However, those who have close friends and those who are poor often give each other paintings as gifts. He once imitated Qu Yuan's "Chu Song" and wrote "Taotao": "The east is connected with Ziwen and the south is connected with Yuan and Xiang; the black is wrongly white and the weak is strong; The disaster is caused by the obstacles, and the harm is based on peeling off the bed; Shang Yang's horse dances, and An sees the luan and phoenix staggering; the emperor's heart is happy for the misfortune, and it is also a good disaster for today's customs!" People have the beauty of death. Those who beg for his calligraphy and painting will not sign their names, but they will inscribe "Mud has no body".
  After the death of Ming Dynasty (1644), he feigned madness and depression and died at the age of 31. He is the author of "Yunzhi Collection" and other works handed down from generation to generation.

  Bu Shunian's self-titled couplet

All the villagers are evil;
The country's scholars are unparalleled.
——Self-titled metaphor
  When Bu Shunnian came of age, he took the provincial examination but failed repeatedly. So he became friends with strange people and talents in Green Xiaozhuang. His behavior was eccentric, and people at the time regarded him as a weirdo. At that time, there was a Taoist priest named Quan Zhensu in Shengze Dongzhen Palace. He was disheveled and had no respect for himself. Only Bu Shunnian treated him as a disciple, met him one night, and sent him poems in admiration. Shan Shanzi, a Shandong native, had practiced Zen since he was a child. Hearing that there was a man named Bu Shunnian in Shengze, Wujiang, who was extremely intelligent and became an immortal without Zen. . One day, Bu Shunnian closed his eyes and woke up without seeing Shan Shanzi. He was looking for Wu Zhi. Whenever Bu Shunian thought about this, he would burst into tears. In the Qing Dynasty, the Bu family had sold their house to the poet Wang Huan, and it had gone through many vicissitudes. However, this place was where Bu Shunian lived. Although it was full of guests at that time, most of the people who came were not taken seriously by others. people. There is a Luxiaozhai in Luxiaozhai. On the Luxiaozhai there are two couplets (see below) written by Bu Shunnian and proudly written by him to express his extraordinary spirit.

The feet must be washed and the abdomen must be bare;
He reached his palm to stroke Liang Wu's beard.
——Proud self-explanation

  Bu Shunian wrote a couplet

The ups and downs of golden waves and the red pear crossing;
The long jade belt hangs down the green Xiaozhuang.
——Inscribed on Zhonghe Bridge, Wangjiazhuang Street, Shengze Town, Wujiang County, Jiangsu Province
  Zhonghe Bridge is located on Wangjiazhuang (formerly known as Luxiaozhuang) Street, Shengze Town, Wujiang City, across the city river. It was announced as a municipal cultural relic protection unit on July 1, 1986. The year of its founding is unknown, but it was rebuilt in the fourth year of Daoguang reign of the Qing Dynasty (1824). It runs east-west, has a single-hole beam structure, and is entirely built with granite. The center width is 2.65 meters, the center width is 3.05 meters, the length is 18.50 meters, the height is 3.70 meters, and the span is 5.50 meters. Zhonghe Bridge has a particularly strong literary flavor. Each of the two bridge abutments has an arched water collection hole with eyebrows on it. The south is called "Boyue" and "Meichuan"; the north is called "Luxiu" and "Tiyun". The bridge couplets on both sides are: "The north wins across the rainbow and merges with the water virtue; the neutral position cultivates the literary style", "The golden waves reflect the red pear crossing in the distance; the long jade belt hangs down the green Xiaozhuang". It points out the surrounding natural environment and contains allusions related to the late Ming Dynasty scholar Sun Bu Shun. The Red Pear Ferry in the first couplet is Yujia Ferry in Shengze. It was named after Shen Wansan, a wealthy citizen at the end of the Yuan Dynasty, who planted red pears all around. The Green Xiaozhuang in the second couplet refers to the former residence of Bu Shunian, a famous figure of the generation. After Bu Shunian passed away, the village got its name. It's called Green Xiaozhuang. The idea is ingenious and the scenes blend together, making it a masterpiece. In Mr. Liu Yazi's poem "On Songling Seniors", the first poem he wrote was about the year of Bu Shun: "Weeping bitterly for the war between the old and the new in Liaoyang, leaving and worrying about the haggard Qu Lingjun. When I came to Luxiaozhuang, I lost this person in the vast world." It can be seen that this person is lost in the vast world. He is highly respected.

  Bu Shunian responded and co-authored the joint article

There is snow beside Baiyang Lake, and white chickens crow during the day; (Year of Bu Shun)
Huangjiaxi waxes, yellow dogs bark at dusk. (Pan Yigui)
——Pan Yigui responded to Bu Shunian
  During the summer months of Bu Shun's year, he would often wear tall girls, wear bright red ramie robes, and sing songs in the city. On moonlit nights, he would often sit under a tree and imagine the smoke forest, until dawn, he could not sleep. Therefore, his writing skills are majestic and dripping with immortality. Reciting poems and answering sentences with friends is also fun. Once, when he went to Pan Yigui's house in Huangjiaxi, he came up with a couplet with the plural characters of a place name: "The snow is white by the Baiyang Lake and the chickens crow during the day." Pan Yigui replied: "The waxy yellow dogs bark at dusk in Huangjiaxi." It became the interesting couplet at that time. talk.

  Commemorate and inscribe the New Year's couplet of Bu Shun

The poem is said to be about Jin and Xia;
The title of the painting is mud without body.
——Composed by an anonymous couplet for the ancestral hall with the surname Bu
  This couplet is a common couplet for the ancestral hall of the surname Bu. The Shangliandian comes from Bu Shang (i.e. Zixia), a scholar of the Jin Dynasty in the late Spring and Autumn Period, who was a disciple of Confucius. After Confucius died, he went to Wei to give lectures. Li Ke and Wu Qi were both his students. The second couplet shows that the Ming Dynasty painter Bu Shun died after the fall of the Ming Dynasty, pretending to be crazy. When he was about to die, some people begged for his painting, without signing it, but with the inscription: "Mud has no body."
