The Story
西周王朝到了后期,奴隶主贵族日益腐朽,不断搜括钱财,发动战争,压迫百姓和奴隶。周厉王即位后,对百姓和奴隶的剥削压迫更重。他贪财好利,独占山林川泽,不许百姓打猎、砍柴、捕鱼,还派人监视他们的言行;谁议论他,他就把谁杀死。人民忍无可忍,到处都有人起来反抗,周王朝的统治越来越不稳固。

  眼看周王朝政权摇摇欲坠,关心国家的大臣都很痛心。忠心耿耿的老臣凡伯,极力劝谏周厉王改变暴虐的政治,力修德政,挽救国家。可是周厉王不听,一些权臣也嘲笑凡伯,说他昏庸无能,不识时务。凡伯非常气愤,挥笔写了一首长诗,表达自己焦急的心情。这首诗很长,其中有一节是这样的:“上天正在逞威肆虐,不要这样盲目快乐。我这老夫一片诚意,小子们却是骄傲自得。我进谏的并非老昏之言。你们反倒拿来取笑戏谑。你们的气焰炽盛如火,真是病重到不能用药救活。”

  这首诗的内容,是劝说周厉王和那些权臣千万别把忧患当作儿戏,应趁它还没有到来的时候尽力防止它。若是忧患越积越多,就像病重一样无法治愈了。 果然不出凡伯所料,公元前842年发生暴动,平民和奴隶们拿起武器,冲进王宫,周厉王仓皇逃走。西周从此哀落下去,出现了分崩离析的局面。

Usage Sample

Mandarin is something very difficult to learn. I think it’s the number of letters and the complex grammar of the language that makes it difficult to learn for a foreigner. And I don’t know how these people write these letters which are also complex. Beverly Diamonds Reviews
