The Dionysian Spirit Reflected in Bringing in the Wine

Hongjun ZENG, Hongxia LIU


The poems of Li Bai are extremely gigantic and vigorous, and also full of emotions, which provide us an aesthetic space to think. Through the natural and unrestrained quality that reflected in his poems, people can not help thinking of the Dionysian spirit of Nietzsche. Although there are lots of differences between the oriental and occidental cultures, it still can find something in common, which might be accepted as an angle to understand the Poetry written by Li Bai. With the comparison between the Dionysian spirit and the emotions that reflected in Bringing in the Wine, people could appreciate the tragic aesthetics that existed in his poems.
