Time Image and Li Bai’s Comprehension and Expression of Life Essence
Zhan Furui;Beijing Foreign Studies University ,Department of Chinese Language and Literature;
Li Bai's(李白) poems showed a strong life consciousness. Being awed at how time flew, he lamented on human mortality, which prominently indicated his life consciousness in his works. He created such images as flashes of time and sparks of flint, blooming in spring and withering lotus seedpods in autumn, inns abroad and passing travelers, and imperial halls in spring and tombs from ancient times, to express his experience of the mortal human life and the eternal universe, and this experience was in nature the poet's experience of life essence which consisted in its transient existence and ultimate nothingness.
