A Study of a Manuscript of Zhou Mengdie

By YI Peng
Sun Yat-sen Journal of Humanities

To use the terms of “rough drafts” and “fair copy,” derived from genetic criticism, to supplant the more generalized or even misleading term of “manuscript” to describe “Fuge” or Bu fu rulai bu fu qin is perhaps more appropriate. By examining the traces in the manuscript and additional processes of transcribing and reconstruction, we hope to arrive at a “text” or avant-texte. This text or avant-texte should assist us in clarifying the complex of relationships among the published text, the creative process, and the thematic concerns of the poem under examination. The avant-texte embodies a hidden matrix and its significance affects our grasp of the published text and its relationship with the creative process.
