Example text

In this section Yao seeks for a man who can subdue the flood that was raging in the world at that time. His officials, including one who is named “Four (Directional) Peaks (si yue )” and thus an extension of the theme of the preceding section of the “Yao dian,” suggest two men: first Gong Gong and then Gun. The former is rejected, and the latter for nine years attempts to tame the flood but in the end fails. 33 The second chapter deals with the work of Shun, to whom Yao yielded the throne, and it touches on the theme of the flood only briefly.

This is followed by a description of Shun’s character that compares him to unstoppable, flooding water, who, when properly guided, acted like the waters of the flood that became rivers channeled into the sea. 54 Thus, it appears that in certain traditions Shun, as a man who lived with wild animals and whose character was like that of a raging flood, embodied the state of the world that was overcome by the labors of Yu. This would provide a mythic substratum to later accounts of the political transition from Shun to Yu.

While some have argued that the graph yu “forester” is a loan for some other word, there is plentiful material, apart from these passages, to show that Shun was in fact associated with the mountains and wastes. A story in the “Shun dian” relates that when Yao was considering employing Shun: “He placed him in a great forest [lu , also glossed “mountain forest”]. ”57 When this story was incorporated into a Shi ji passage translated below, the links of Shun with the realms administered by the forester official were made even more explicit.
