Zhou Ji (1781—1839) is a person of great influence on Ci’s theories from the middle Qing dynasty to Early Republican China. Most of the researchers have mentioned the importance of Zhou Ji’s Ci theory; however, the contemporary researches of the relationship between his Ci theory and works are still insufficient. Cunshenxuanci is Zhou Ji’s collections of Ci from his early to middle years, which is written among ‘Cibianxu,’ “Jiecunzhailuncizazhu” and “Songsijiacixuan.” It is not only a reveal of his talent for Ci, but also the reflection of the transitive procedure from Zhe Xi to Chang Zhou in the middle Qing dynasty.
This article focuses on the relationship between the practice of Zhou Ji’s works and his Ci theory. It starts with the connections among Ci Qing, Ji Tuo and Yong Wu. Then attempting to analyze how was he influenced by Wentingyun and JiangKui in his early years and the reason why Jiaxuan became one of his ideal agendas of Ci. Based on both the textual analysis and the interpretation of his Ci theory, we can re-understand the formative progress of Zhou Ji’s Ci theory.
