Chapter Summary

The "Chen Cheng Heng" chapter of the Yuejue shu is an important and highly influential example of a tradition associating the figure of Confucius with the history of the ancient south, which is very closely related to the chapter on the disciples of Confucius found in the Shiji. It demonstrates the crucial involvement of one of Confucius'most important disciples, Zigong, in the great political events of the day, in particular the conquest of Wu by Yue. Zigong was the style-name of Duanmu Ci a disciple of Confucius some thirty years his junior, who originated from the state of Wei. The chapter discusses the diplomatic triumph achieved by Zigong in detail.
