Both The Nine Elegies and Li Sao are epitomes of the Situation of Elegy in Qu Yuan's prose poems. The Situation of Elegy revealed by Li Sao has overstepped the poet's real life and become a typical example of Qu Yuan's prose poems; at the same time, The Nine Elegies are often regarded as a group of poems, and the creation date and site, the authenticity of each poem, and the single studies of each elegy are hot topics in previous studies. Consequently, the overall study of The Nine Elegies has been relatively weak in the past. As a matter of fact, all the poems of The Nine Elegies are sequenced in categories, and the length, the form of expression and the language style of each poem are similar, as well as the emotional expressions; yet the nature as elegies are reflected more sufficiently in The Nine Elegies. Hong Xingzu made some knowledgeable remarks on Qu Yuan's prose poems in his ChuCi BuZhu, in which he said, ＂The diction of Li Sao is soothing, while that of The Nine Elegies is pressing. The difference between the two is in the sense of propriety＂. However, the remark of the sense of propriety is to some extent ambiguous. This paper will elaborate in detail the ＂pressing＂ emotional writing in The Nine Elegies, which is different from that of Li Sao, by descriptive analysis of the self-pronouns, the angry lyrical songs and the expression of resentment through the sites of writing in the poems.
