Abstract:Two officials in the later phases of their dynasties had comparative literary talent and martial skills often focused on acts of patriotic self-sacrifice for their countries. These officials were Wen Tianxiang in South Sung dynasty and Zhang Huangyan of the later South Ming dynasty Comparisons of their works, particularly on sea battles have sadly been neglected. This paper offers a comparative review of 23 pieces of Wen Tianxiang's poetry and 56 pieces of Zhang Huangyan's poems in the areas of narrative, lyrics and commentaries. It further analyses how Wen Tianxiang's poems influenced Zhang Huangyans' works from overlapping styles of writing, as well as various emotions and content. It is concluded that Wen Tianxiang was the founder in the writing of sea-battling poetry while Zhang Huangyans was his by-product. For both officials the sea was not only a symbol of killing and ruin but also a symbol of struggle with enemy and more often in the case of Zhang Huangyan, a place to show devotion to the country.
