For a long time, the legitimacy of Chinese traditional poetry and lyrics has been suspected, denied or suspended. Therefore, it was deserted by literature studies and literature history writing. Accordingly, it caused a man-made barrier to this part of literature resources. Some researchers have doubted and denied the legitimacy of traditional poetry and lyrics and some paid no attention to the fate and form of the traditional literary style. Academic researchers should change their prejudice to the traditional poetry and lyrics. First of all, we should understand the rationality of the traditional poetry and lyrics.
