Sample text

When Kongming said that mortality is man’s common lot, he was mourning the 24 Dominic Cheung limited time in which man can achieve his goal. In discussing the vision of Western tragedy, Richard Sewall brought forth the concept of “human boundary” and pointed out that the tragic vision impels the man of action to fight against his destiny, kick against the pricks, and state his case before God or his fellows. 15 Kongming has reached his human boundary when he comes to the end of his life and feels the ultimate challenge of his human existence.

His confidence in dealing with Zhou Yu is shown with such expressions as “smile” (xiao) and “laugh aloud” (da xiao), expressions that demonstrate the hero’s playfulness against his jealous and suspicious opponent. Confidence and optimism also inspire Kongming’s theatrical talent. Kongming is a skillful actor (so is Liu Bei, by following Kongming’s choreography), a talent exemplified in his dealing with Lu Su, who comes time and again demanding the returning of Jingzhou to Wu. At Zhou Yu’s funeral, Kongming’s eulogy and theatrical crying move all the hostile Wu officials and generals.

During this long stretch of time serving as chief advisor and administrator, Kongming has eaten little and slept less. After he entered the Riverlands, he made a southern expedition to capture the barbarian leader Menghuo. He made no rest stops but continued to head northward to attack Wei. Six times, Kongming made northern expeditions and six times he failed. We can almost assume that the northern expedition had become his everlasting obsession. Kongming’s fatigue is not accompanied by inertia; rather, it shows a constant striving and struggling.
