小编导读:《千年调》是南宋著名词人辛弃疾的作品。这首词最大的艺术特点,就是选取某些特征相似的事物,来尽情描绘,多方比喻,辛辣讽刺,鞭挞世俗,达到了畅快淋漓的境地。词人于讽刺中又表现自己的节操和态度,故它不仅仅止于讽刺,自己的形象也显露了出来,起到了对比作用。这首词由于比喻生动、贴切,不仅增加了词的含蓄性,给人更多的联想,而且也增强了词的形象性与幽默性,于幽默、嘲讽之中,透露出作者的愤激之情与鄙夷之色。

辛弃疾 《千年调》

左手把青霓,右手挟明月。吾使丰隆前导,叫开阊阖。周游上下,径入寥天一。览县圃,万斛泉,千丈石。
钧天广乐,燕我瑶之席。帝饮予觞甚乐,赐汝苍璧。嶙峋突兀,正在一丘壑。余马怀,仆夫悲,下恍惚。

Song of a Thousand Years
The Green Rock

Xin Qiji

In my left hand I hold the rainbow bright
And I bring down the moon with my right.
I order the Thunder God to go before
To open for me the celestial door.
I go up and down, far and nigh,
Become one with the only and lonely sky.
I see the hanging mountain
And the inexhaustible fountain,
And the green rock of a thousand feet high.

Hearing heavenly music played,
I’m feasted by the Pool of jade.
Our Lord invites me to wine
And gives me a mini-cliff divine.
Rugged and steep,
It epitomizes mountain high and valley deep.
My horse won’t leave,
My servant seems to grieve.
Awake, I don’t believe.
