回答: We should thank Confucius for cutting volumns "Book of Poem" 由 HunHunSheng 于 2005-7-19, 15:11:43:
not as literature. When you read literatures, you pay attention to words, sentences, usages, idioms, etc. But if you do that to Book of Poem, you get bogged down by these antiquated usages such as "Qi Yue Liu Huo". To me, it's like "picking up the sesame but leave out the watermelon".
However, WangQin culture rewards people who can tell these trivial details and these people are respected as "cultured". In my opinion, what these people have is mostly garbage.
