According to Chen Shi-xiang's articles such as “The Lyric Tradition in China”, compared with the Western tradition which focuses on epic and drama, the tradition of the Chinese literature can be called a lyric one, aiming to express the inner self of the authors. Deduced and elaborated by many scholars, this idea is prevalent and influential in the field of Chinese studies, and becomes a powerful explanatory system in Taiwan and Hong Kong. However, Mr. Chen's denomination is found doubtful, since he only treated the Chinese poetry with the model of Western lyrics, but neglected the notable differences of ethics, study of human nature, theory of poetry between China and the West. As the result, Mr. Chen exaggerated the features of lyrics and concluded the Chinese literature with them. His argument therefore is questionable in methodology, point of view and ideology, and what he denominated is a tradition which never exists in China.
