Li Shangyin: The Sui Palace ~ 《隋宫》 李商隐 with English Translations

小编导读:七绝《隋宫》是唐代诗人李商隐的作品。此诗选取典型题材,讽咏隋炀帝杨广奢侈嬉游之事。首二句写炀帝任兴恣游,肆行无忌,且滥杀忠谏之士,遂伏下杀身之祸。次二句取裁锦一事写其耗费之巨,将一人与举国、宫锦与障泥和船帆对比,突出炀帝之骄奢淫逸。

《隋宫》 李商隐

乘兴南游不戒严,九重谁省谏书函。
春风举国裁宫锦,半作障泥半作帆。

The Sui Palace
by Li Shangyin

When gaily the Emperor toured the south
Contrary to every warning,
His whole empire cuts brocades,
Half for wheel-guards, half for sails.
