Through a close reading of Xin Qiji's (1140-1207) song lyrics, Lian (Chinese language and literature, Denison U.) reveals the aesthetic implications of the eccentricity of an unruly self within the Ruist tradition. His analysis of the concept of vital force and of the friction between different literary trends sheds new light on the lingering tension in the Chinese poetic tradition between decorum and personal emotion.
