A Comparative Analysis of Metaphors Involving Chrysanthemums

Wang Xueting
Abstract—Metaphor plays a crucial role in poems and literature. Against the background of the poetess Li Qingzhao's frustrated life and unexpected emotional obstacles, and through the study of the images of chrysanthemum in a part of her poems, the essay analyzes Chrysanthemum from the perspective of Bixing and the cognitive perspective of the conceptual metaphor, which display the changes of the concepts of “chrysanthemum” in Li Qingzhao's poems and the influence of the “chrysanthemum” in her poems on “chrysanthemum” original image.

Index Terms—Bixing, conceptual metaphor, Li Qingzhao's poem, chrysanthemum.
