Book 2 Chapter 15

Origin of the Chapter's Title

The title 只影向谁去 is a line from the poem To The Tune of Moyuer (雁丘词) by Yuan Haowen (元好问), a poet from the Jurchen Jin Dynasty, which co-existed with Southern Song.

The context of the line in its passage:


  • He must have realized only he is left to fly over those lonely thousands of miles of clouds and snowy mountains alone.[1]
  • He must have had a thought:

     For whom shall I trail a forlorn shadow flying over

     Ten thousand miles of grey clouds

     And mountains of night snow?[2]
