Sun Kangyi 孫康宜 has argued that Qian Zhongshu 錢鍾書's preference for the Song poetic style caused him to disagree with Wang Shizhen 王士禛's ”Shenyun shuo 神韻說,” or Theory of Intuitive Charm. However, according to both Ye Jiaying 葉嘉瑩's judgment of Qian and Qian's own critique of ”scholastic poetry 學人之詩,” poetic style was not the main standard Qian used in his research into poetry. A close reading of the paragraphs related to Wang Shizhen in the ”Tanyi lu” 《談藝錄》reveals the presence of commendation, critique, and even a defense of Wang's position. Indeed, Qian's use of the phrases ”lack of talent 才薄” and ”good at writing 善施” demonstrate that his use of commendation and critique was complementary, and that their purport was derived from poetics. Qian moreover used the framework of Shenyun to confirm Wang's position as key a link between the past and the future; however, he was unsatisfied with Wang's constriction of Yan Yu 嚴羽's Shenyun, which later incited disagreement and debate. In fact, Qian's critique of Wang Shizhen was intended to legitimate Yan Yu. Furthermore, this position, which was formed after his mastery of Chinese and Western poetics, originated from Qian's view that Shenyun represented the ultimate type of poetry. In short, Qian was concerned with poetics in the ”Wang Shizhen lun 王士禛論” he did not comment randomly or on the basis of his personal predilections.
