There is a big roc bird in Zhuangzi's Carefree travel. "Its back is thousands of miles away. Fly in anger, its wings are like clouds hanging from the sky. "It's big, it's powerful, it's high, it's far away. However, is big enough to get the way? Is high enough to be free? The most important thing is that since it is big and powerful, why should it be angry?
Maybe it's just a metaphor. What is broad in scope, deep in insight, rich in content and so on can be called big, which makes people think of the sky in the sky, the sea in the sky, the generations of human beings, and the people in the world; the true, the good, the beautiful, equality, freedom, and fraternity are all such things; our material civilization, our spiritual civilization are also such things; pay attention to these, pay attention to the sky, the earth and the sea; Pay attention to the living conditions of most people in our society, and it is the same thing!
This poem drama makes an in-depth analysis and elaboration on the above issues. Its main line is the detention and liberation process of Dapeng bird, and the dark line is his love with Qingniao. It describes four parts of Dapeng from awakening to nirvana to crossing to rebirth. It shows the irreconcilable contradictions between thunder as a feudal ruler and Dapeng bird, Qingniao and Hailuo, who represent the oppressed. It criticizes all kinds of stupid and merciless phenomena, and also reveals the root cause why Dapeng bird was worried about being angry for the life of all living beings.
Form is secondary, content is primary. The same poetic drama takes myth as its background, but it doesn't write anything about immortals and illusions. Its connotation is scientific, and it reflects the reality. It is a free song of flying birds.
