Chinese poem illustration: 小雅 祈父/ Xiaoya – Uncle Qi by Anonymous
Full video also available at Bilibili：小雅 祈父
Interpreted as a blaming poem by Han scholars(汉儒), a soldier of household troops blames the general Qifu(祈父) of leaving him at the frontier for too long.
A totally new interpretation is developed in this video mainly based on the analysis of the word 祈父 and 恤, which turned out to be a poem of condolence and yearning to his misfortune father who is with the name of Uncle Qi(祈父). My new interpretation makes the whole poem self-consistent without creating any weird exceptional definitions toward characters and words in this poem. Han scholars created too many definitions for the characters in Shijing（诗经） which I usually do not consent to.
