Zhuge Liang---the King of ‘Abuse’in the Three Kingdoms Period
As one of the chief figures in ‘Romance of Three Kingdom’,Zhuge liang was not only respected by his intelligence,but also famous for his exetremely excellent eloquence.(It’s difficult to know who will beat who by words of mouth if he meets Adolf Hitler)
It must be accepted by most people that my say Mr Zhuge’s excellent speechcraft,but there may be a lot of people have impulse to hit me by bricks if I say he is the king of abuse.
For Mr Zhuge was a scholar with profound knowledge in Romance of Three Kingdom,so I surely very understand why people have such impulsion.So,a great scholar,like him,can abuse? With affirmative answer,I personally think his abusive level came out first through the whole book and absolutely could say nobody can match.
You’ll find the answer why I said that and made such answer,if you read the following text..
Before taking about Mr. Zhuge,let’s see Mr.Miheng,who was known far and wide with abuse,judged‘pedantic intellectual as the tongue steel’by Caocao,so we could be known that his abusive skill was so high in that kind of group.But what he has done nothing but Beating a Drum to Curse Cao and abusing his civil officials and military officers,cursing at Liubiao in Jing Zhou.And finally Miheng lost his head when he abused Huangzhu in Jiang Xia.and from then he was sent to have dinners with the King of Hell.(I don’t know what’s happened in Yama’s Palace)
Now we turn back to see Mr Zhuge,who was more brilliant than Miheng.For example,Mr Zhuge met a group of idea men before seeing Sunquan,when he went to Jiang Dong for canvassing Sunquan to ally with Liubei to attack Caocao.which made Zhuge liang become famous overnight for ‘Zhuge liang had a heated dispute with a group of scholars’.
However,what’s the hell of the so-called ‘Zhuge liang had a heated dispute with a group of scholars’? In the finally analysis,Mr zhuge just abused advisers of Jiang Dong from end to end headed by Zhangzhao.Such as,he said to Zhangzhao‘how could a sparrow understand the ambitions of a swan’and said that Luji was a thief of stealing oranges that he couldn’t match with the man of noble character just like Zhuge himself,and so on.,and so on..
Surely,Mr Zhuge didn’t give totally play to his abusive ability at that time for lacking rich experiences,but following his riseing age,the it was getting stronger day by day.(It virtually seemed like torrential and irremediable river water)
After the War of the Red Cliff,Zhouyu was dead for angry with Zhuge’s only one sentence-----Zhou Lang’s brilliant scheme could stabilize the country, give his enemy a wife and lose his soldiers as well.(Absolutely,Mr Zhou had a very bad temper too)
The most famous and successful abusive case of Mr. Zhuge was the one in Chapter ninty three of Romance of Three Kingdom,and its title is Jiang Boyue Surrendered to Kongming(Zhuge liang’s style),and Wanglang Was Dead by the Abuse of Marquis Wu Xiang(Mr.Zhuge’s rank).So,what’s the hell did Mr. Zhuge said to Wanglang?
“I thought a senior statesman of Han dynasty like you,should be on the upmost level,unexpectedly it was so intolerable to the ear…I could read you like a book:Lived on the side of the East Sea,you were selected as Xiao Lian(an official rank in ancient times) into the official circles at the beginning.It was expected that you should committed youself to serve the monarch in administering the state affairs,maintaining Han dynasty,invigorating Liu’s state power.To the contrary,you helped and conspired to supplant the king. The felony you have done couldn’t be forgiven neither by god nor man! And your flesh are wanted to eat by all the people!... With despicable,you should find a place with food and drink to hide.How dare you address me the fortunes of Han dynasty!You old bastard,with grey hair and mustache are going to die soon,and it would be a great shame for you to meet the former emperors of Han dynasty in another world!Retreat immmediately!Making room for me to fight it out on the battle fields with Devil Cao,the traitor.”Behold,what a brilliant eloquence,Prime Minister Zhuge with an unmatched cursing skills,great momentum!
Miheng,Being famous for his abusive ability, pedantic intellectual as the tongue steel,who couldn’t compare to Zhuge liang with such ability,momentum,well-grounded in abuse.
Compare to theses two men,one lost his own head for his abuse,the other abuse others to die as well as maintain his own’s,and who was aslo respected with the image of erudite civil officials(It’s may well say that he was the most intelligent man in that time).
To conclude, I say:Mr.Zhuge--- the King of ‘Abuse’ in the Three Kingdoms Period.
