Huzhuoyuan, whose real name is hulingneng, is a folk poet as famous as Zhang Dayou in the Mid Tang Dynasty. The following China story net editor has brought you relevant content to share with you.

It is recorded in the Yunxi Youyi written by fan Xuan of the Tang Dynasty and the Tang poetry chronicle hulingneng written by Ji Yougong of the Song Dynasty that he was born in the Zhenyuan and Yuanhe years of the Tang Dynasty. He had a career in nailing and reaming (washing mirrors, mending pots, curing bowls, etc. in ancient times). He was able to write poetry, but did not abandon the industry of nailing and reaming. People all over the world called him “Hu nailing and reaming”. Zhao Yi of the Qing Dynasty wrote in his poem “a gift to the storyteller Huang Zhou Shi”: “there is no need to work on Zhang’s doggerel poems, and it is not too careless to make a sentence with Hu nails.” There is also a sentence in Deng Pu’s poem “Abolishing elegance by self examination” that “in the past, there were nails and hinges, but now there is no oil”.

Due to the lack of historical data, the life of this “nail hinge” poet has not been examined. Now some people think that there is no such person in history, “Hu nailed hinge” is just a synonym for some ancient popular poetry writers.

There is another interesting myth about how this Hu Dingzhi learned to write poetry:

According to legend, one day, a fairy came to Hu Dingyuan’s house, stripped all his clothes, cut open his abdomen, put a book in the flesh, cut open his chest, and put a book next to his heart. After sewing, I saw blood everywhere. When the immortal left, Hu Dingyuan would write poems from then on.

Some Buddhist scriptures even record this Hu Dingzhi, saying that he is not only good at chanting poetry, but also good at meditation. There are many Buddhist cases. Here is an example:

One day, Hu nailed and hinged to the Zen master baoshouzhao (Baoshou I) in shenzhenzhou (now Zhengding, Hebei). Zen master Baoshou asked, “are you a Hu pin hinge?” Hu pin said, “No.” Zen master Baoshou asked, “are you still nailed to the void?” Hu nailed and said, “please break it.” Upon hearing this, Zen master Baoshou raised his stick and hit him face to face. Hu nailed hinge was puzzled and said, “don’t hit a monk by mistake.” Zen master Baoshou said, “there are many masters telling you the truth.” After Hu Dingyuan was beaten, he went to Zhaozhou to salute the monks of Zhaozhou. He talked with monk Zhaozhou about shenbaoshou. The Zhaozhou monk asked, “Why were you beaten by him?” Hu nailed and said, “where is it?” The Zhaozhou monk said, “what can I do with this crack?” After hearing this, Hu nailed his head and said that there was a province in his words. He thanked him enthusiastically. The Zhaozhou monk said, “let’s nail this seam.”

The Dharma is profound, which is difficult for the layman to understand. Some people also say that the Hu pin hinge for meditation is not the Hu pin hinge for writing poetry.

Hu lingneng, a real and illusory “nail hinge” poet, actually has a poem selected into modern primary school textbooks, which also makes the author remember his name since childhood. This poem is “children’s fishing”

A child with a shaggy head learns to hang on to his fiber while sitting on his side with berries and moss reflected in his body.

A passer-by beckons with a question. He is too scared to answer.

This is a poem with the theme of children’s life, which is rare in Tang poetry. The first two sentences are written from the appearance, which is real writing, and the last two sentences focus on the expression. This poem is not deliberately carved. In its plain and simple narration, it reveals a bit of innocence and infinite childlike interest, which can be said to be unique.
