Structure of the dissertation In addition to the Introduction, Conclusion, List of References and Appendices, the main content of the dissertation is deployed into five chapters as follows: Chapter 1: Overview of the research situation and some related issues related to the topic (15 page, from page 7 to page 22); Chapter 2: The premise of the ideology of people-closeness in literature from the tenth century to the end of the seventeenth century (14 page, from page 23 to 37 page); Chapter 3: The people-closeness ideology of in literature from the 10th century to the end of the 14th century (41 page, from page 38 to 79 page); Chapter 4: The people-closeness ideology in the 15th century literature (34 page, from page 80 to 114 page); Chapter 5: The people-closeness ideology in literature from the sixteenth century to the end of the seventeenth century (34 page, from page 115 to 149 page). 5 Chapter 1 OVERVIEW OF RESEARCH SITUATION AND SOME ISSUES RELATED TO THE TOPIC 1.1. The concept of the people and the ideology of people-closeness 1.1.1. The concept of people We have retrieved the concept of people originating from the original Chinese meaning, from the Vietnamese dictionary books, and at the same time studied this concept carefully according to Confucian conception and the inner expansion of the concept of people-closeness according to the modern concept. From the things presented above, the author of the thesis would like to draw some common points about the concept of people (here in the middle ages, by the ideology of people closeness that the dissertation is associated with this time) with the following scientific meaning: People is a concept that appears and exists when the society has class, state, used to refer to ordinary workers, large numbers, without power and in contrast with those rulership in geographical areas and occupations in various fields of material production and spiritual activities of a given society. Therefore, the concept of people has a clear political meaning and nuance, which partly reflects social relationships. In feudal society, although no longer considered as tools of working and speaking, people still belong to a dependent position that the feudal Chinese regime called "subjects". In modern society, the role of the people is fully understood. The people are placed in the relationship of interests and obligations with the state. The people have the right to vote, to elect people who deserve to be in the state apparatus, who can represent their interests, then the people can be the citizens. 1.1.2. The concept of people closeness On the basis of understanding the concept of people-closeness according to Confucian conception, the thesis proposes the basic contents of the concept of peoplecloseness ideology as follows: The thought of the people is understood as the conception and perception of the people, how to behave towards the people in the direction: closeness, attachment to the people; love the people, promote the strength of the people (respect the people), and appreciate the people. The complex and multi-dimensional nature in the concept of people-closeness ideology is also reflected in the determination of the subject of the thought of the people. This is the mindset of the ruling class and of scholars. The ruling class uses this thought to govern the country. The ideology of people-closeness of the scholars - feudal intellectuals, in that thought, there is a message of the people's wishes and 6 aspirations. Therefore, the connotation "ideology of the people" in each dynasty corresponds to the concept "people" in each period, thereby also showing the level and awareness of the "junzi" class at that time. Through the ideology of peoples-closeness, it is possible to evaluate the progress, civilization or conservative, backwardness of the dynasties. 1.1.3. Criteria to define the ideology of people-closeness in literary works From the analysis of relationships, different aspects in the concept of peoplecloseness and the ideology of people-closeness, the thesis determines to explore the ideology of people-closeness in Vietnamese medieval literature from the 10th century to at the end of the 17th century with the contents: The ideology of people-closeness is shown directly when it comes to people, this is the main content that the topic is interested in researching. The ideology of people closeness is shown indirectly when writing about the country, society, ... but thereby sending aspirations about people's lives. When writing about people in poverty but at the same time expressing their dreams of a peaceful and prosperous country so that the people will not suffer. Therefore, there are cases where the ideology of people- closeness and patriotism overlap. However, these are two categories because, the ideology of people-closeness from the perspective of the purpose of writing about the people basically in the humanity-humane stance on human rights to life. And patriotism is basically on the national stance. Our thesis refers to the ideology of the people-closeness in literature, focusing on three aspects: First, the people-closeness is love the people. This is the foundation and also the root of the ideology of the people. Secondly, people-closeness means respect the people, that is to promote the people, appreciate the role and position of the people; consider people as the origin of the country. Only if we respect the people, we can promote the strength of the people. Therefore, the respect of the people is the second level, taking a step forward when realizing the role and meaning of the people in social construction. Third, peoplecloseness are the grace of the people. When the rulership is "grateful to the people", the status of the people has been appreciated and truly respected. The attitude of "gratitude" to the people is the attitude of the underdog towards the above. Only when there is a high awareness can there be this thought and gratitude and when "grateful", there is a way to behave and treat accordingly. Basically, this content only appeared in Nguyen Trai. Nguyen Trai's ideology about people is an ideology that transcends his time and is very meaningful to modern times when the role and position as well as awareness of the people have made great progress. 7 1.2. Overview of research In general, there are the following research directions related to the topic of the thesis: 1.2.1. Studying ideology of people-closeness from the perspective of thought, philosophy, and history related to the topic The following typical documents can be mentioned: The history of Vietnamese thought by researcher Nguyen Dang Thuc; Oriental thought evokes reference points of author Cao Xuan Huy; Vietnamese Thought of Tran Dynasty (2014) by Tran Thuan; Brief history of Vietnamese philosophical ideas (2016) by researcher Nguyen Tai Dong and Nguyen Tai Thu; The human problem in the history of Vietnamese thought in the fifhteentheighteenth century by author Nguyen Ba Cuong, Dai Viet the full-time history, ... In general, researchers on the history of Vietnamese thought on the one hand point out that peoplecloseness is a great thought of the era, it is closely related to history, thought, culture, philosophy, religion, especially Confucianism, Buddhism, on the other hand, peoplecloseness are also the quintessence of the tradition of patriotism, humanitarianism and Vietnamese culture, which is crystallized in the compositions of many great authors in Vietnamese medieval literature. 1.2.2. Studying people-closeness in literature Research on people-closeness ideology in the development of Vietnamese literary history In general, the studies on the history of Vietnamese medieval literature all consider the ideology of people-closeness as a tradition in Vietnamese literature. These include research papers of author Dinh Gia Khanh in the Vietnamese Literature Collection from the X - XVII century (1962); Vietnamese literature (X century - the first half of the eighteenth century) (1978); Nguyen Trai literature (1984) by Bui Van Nguyen; Medieval Vietnamese literature from the perspective of culture (2003) by Tran Nho Thin. Vietnamese medieval literature, Volume 1, (2006) by Dinh Thi Khang; Middle-aged Vietnamese literature (X century - the end of the nineteenth century) (2006) by Doan Thi Thu Van, ... The problem of ideology of people-closeness has been paid attention by researchers but only raised at the preliminary level because they are not in-depth studies on ideology of people-closeness in literature. A new point in our research is to recognize more thoroughly the ideology of peop-closeness in specific authors and literary works. 8 Research on literary authors, especially major authors, has mentioned peoplecloseness ideology Studying the ideology of people-closeness from the tenth century to the end of the seventeenth century, we found that the works, research documents focused on the great authors Tran Nguyen Dan, Nguyen Phi Khanh, Nguyen Trai, Le Thanh Tong, Nguyen Binh Khiem, Phung Khac Khoan, ... In general, the opinions highly appreciated the crystallization of the deep-seated ideology of the medieval Confucianists in typical aspects: common people, respect for the people and demonstrate responsibility towards the people. Summary of chapter 1 From the theory of concepts and terminology, we have described the situation of research on people-closeness ideology in medieval Vietnamese literature from the tenth century to the end of the seventeenth century in three main directions: research on peoplecloseness ideology in the history of Vietnamese ideology; research on people-closeness ideology in the development of Vietnamese literary history; studying the ideology of people-closeness in literary writers, especially the great authors of Vietnamese medieval literature. The large, medium or small survey works are of great significance to the researcher in the process of implementing the topic. Chapter 2 THE PREMISES OF THE PEOPLE-CLOSENESS IDEOLOGY IN LITERATURE FROM THE TENTH CENTURY TO THE END OF THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY 2.1. The historical and social premise of the people-closeness ideology in literature from the 10th century to the end of the seventeenth century 2.1.1. The history of founding and defending the country of the nation. Our ancestor„s process of building and defending the country always upholds the ideology of the people, consider reduction of tax burden as a national policy and the best way to defend the country. Long time ago, the people-closeness ideology is shown through the legends of the Hung Kings to Thuc An Duong Vuong, Trung Nu Vuong dynasty,... From the tenth century to the fifteenth century, history has placed the independence of Dai Viet country in a situation that always has to deal with the war of invasion from the North and South. The overwhelming majority of the fouding kings are praised as patriotic, talented and virtuous, have a spirit of the people-closeness ideology, prioritize "patriotism and rule of the nation". In the construction of the feudal government, basically the feudal class knew 9 how to rely on the power of the people, promoting the tradition of patriotism to build and protect the nation and the people. 2.1.2. System of education, examinations The tenth - fourteenth century was the first stage of building the feudal state of Vietnam. The kings of both the Ly and Tran dynasties focused on education and organized examintaions to select talented people to help the people and the country. The court extended Quoc Tu Giam to train the children of nobles and mandarins. Moreover, the study is also extended to the people, if talented children are also educated, they will be appointed as mandarins. The exams are regularly held to select talents to help the country and the people. In the fifteenth century, when Confucianism prospered, the Le dynasty paid more attention to education, exams, and encouraged talented people to help the country. The classes in Quoc Tu Giam has been expanded, the use of talents does not depend on the class and towards the people. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, although feudalism was on the decline, study and examination were still paid attention to by feudal groups. The Mac Dynasty right after the construction of the main court, quickly held examinations to select talents. Confucianism was still appreciated, the Confucian class, the people who were effective for the feudal state were still appointed to importan posts. 2.2. Thought and cultural premise of the people-closeness ideology in literature from the tenth century to the end of the seventeenth century 2.2.1. Native beliefs and folk culture The traditional culture of the nation and folk beliefs is a great source of strength, the basis for the ancient Vietnamese to resist the "Sinicization" during a thousand years under Chinese feudalism. The forms of spiritual beliefs with native identity always occupies an important position in the spiritual life of the majority of Vietnamese residents. Along with native cultural beliefs, ideological foundations also appeared early from the time of the nation's foundation: patriotism and compassion for people or patriotism, humanism and humanitarian. The tales of legends and tales handed down are the sharp evidence of the richness of Vietnamese thoughts and souls. Folk culture is always absorbed and fostered to build the official culture of Dai Viet State through the dynasties. From factors of culture, traditional folk beliefs and the inner vitality of the national spirit have created a distinctive character in the ethics of Vietnamese people. Long time ago, in the treasure of folklore, the working people are both collectives in writing literature and the central "character" of the social life. The Vietnamese tradition has always respected people for many generations. 10 They give prominence to a faithful and loyal lifestyle; uphold the spirit of solidarity, loving attachment between families, villages and communities, society, nation, ... These concepts are expressed succinctly through many idioms, proverbs, ca dao, through legends with bold human values. 2.2.2. Confucianism and the people-closeness ideology In the content of Confucianism, it contains theories, ideas, referring to many fields, many aspects of social and human life, including thoughts about the people and the role and position of the people as “consider the people as the base”, “The people are the most important, the State stands behind, the king is even lighter”,… The ideological influence on the people of Confucianism is shown quite specifically in ideology of humane policy, humanity; the government way, social management, law and the implementation of major national political undertakings such as the relocation of the capital, the succession of the throne, launching the resistance against invaders, protection of the independence of country, the State apparatus building and development, law establishment and enforcement, education - examinations, national construction and development, ... Besides promoting the acceptable factors of Confucianism, the introduction of the public's positive such as the people-closeness ideology, the policy of incarnation, the promotion of the dignity, the pure temperament of the scholar, ... have made Confucian thought more and more position and role in larger and more facets of life, thought of Vietnamese people. 2.2.3. Buddhism and the people-closeness ideology Buddhism advocates equality, compassion, and philanthropy. Compassion and philanthropy of the Buddha makes the compassion for the people and for others to be plentiful and better. The positive ideas and principles of Buddhist teachings are absorbed and widely spread by Vietnamese people in social life. Buddhism is an important religious premise of the ideology of the people in medieval Vietnamese literature for many centuries. The Buddhist spirit of equality and philanthropy finds an example in harmony with the traditional spirit of democracy and compassion from the beginning of the nation. Not only that, when choosing this ideology, the nation's intellectuals also filter out from it what is most necessary for the time and always pay attention to apply it to real life. From the point of view of the people, they have gathered great power of the masses in the work of protecting national independence and developing the country. 11 Summary of chapter 2 In chapter 2, the thesis has researched and explained history and society as the basis for the formation of people-closeness ideology in literature from the tenth century to the end of the seventeenth century. The history of our ancestors from the very earliest days of the nation's foundation has been characterized by community cohesion through the feudal dynasties in our country, There are emperors who are very kind, compassionate and respectful of the people, uphold "virtue" in caring for all peoples, so that both unite the hearts of the people and ensure the long-term sustainability and prosperity of the dynasty. The thesis also shows the influence of the premise of thought and culture on the people- closeness ideology on the aspects: native beliefs, folklore; Confucian ideology, Buddhism and the system of education and examination of the feudal dynasties in our country in the tenth – eleventh centuries. Native beliefs, traditional cultures and folklore not only create the inner vitality of the national spirit, but also create a unique feature in the ideology of the Vietnamese people. Education and election of the feudal dynasties always paid attention in the context of anti-foreign aggression. The policy of appriciating talented people, considering “One of the main sources of national strength is our talent” makes it possible for the people to be educated and to be appointed mandarins when passing these examinations. That creates favorable conditions for the country to have talented celebrities and intellectuals devoting to the people. Chapter 3 PEOPLE’S CLOSENESS IDEOLOGY IN LITERAURE FROM THE X CENTURY TO THE END OF THE XIV CENTURY 3.1. Overview of the people-closeness ideology in medieval Vietnamese literature The panoramic picture of the people-closeness ideology in medieval Vietnamese literature is richly expressed, we recognize the object according to the historical movement process. At each literary stage there will be great authors, works and different tendencies. Vietnamese medieval literature opened from the tenth century to the end of the fourteenth century and lasted the most prosperous in the Li-Tran era. Literature of this period aimed to reflect the struggle to protect the national independence, the Vietnamese feudal dynasties constantly consolidate and develop the country, the feudal class had progressive ideas that basically followed the aspirations of the people. Vietnamese medieval literature had the next step in the fifteenth century, besides the points that followed the people-closeness ideology of Li-Tran literature, this century's literature focused on reflecting the miracles of the Le 12 dynasty in the resistance war against the Ming army, praised the strength of the era and national traditions, the stable and prosperous development of the feudal dynasty through poems, phu, essays in both Han and Nom characters that all achieved excellent results. In the sixteenth - seventeenth centuries, the Vietnamese feudal class entered a period of crisis. In the early Le and Le Mac dynasties, the feudal class sometimes went against the interests of the people. The people-closeness ideology in this period was associated with the rise of the national spirit, going from the melody of praising the feudal dynasty to the critical tone of social reality, fighting against the decline of the feudal regime for the sake of the people. When the decline of feudalism led to elimination, basically against the interests of the people, the people-closeness ideology in the literature of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries focused on the humanitarian thought for the right of people, building a heroic peasant image in the resistance war against the invasion. Outstanding in the peoplecloseness ideology of the literature of this period is the sympathy towards the people, towards the small, suffering, oppressed people; the people's dream of justice, a wish for a happy life and a bright future for the people. That content is shown in poetic works, recitations, novel chapters, oration... In the autocratic environment, people-closeness ideology is basically critical of the feudal society and has very little mention of humanism. This is a progressive change of people-closeness ideology in the final stage of medieval literature. The ideology is not only a significant issue in the Middle Ages but it has been inherited and developed throughout the history of Vietnamese literature. The people-closeness ideology continues to be interested and applied flexibly in the current country renewal. The spirit of "taking the people as the base" has been strongly promoting the role of the people, creating a great driving force for the development of the country. We chose to study the people-closeness ideology from the tenth century to the end of the seventeenth century because during the eight centuries of literature associated with these five feudal dynasties, the ideology had had a process of movement and development with its own characteristics, inheriting and continuing from one period to another, but there were also some common fundamental points of the people-closeness ideology in Vietnamese medieval literature. This has been analyzed specifically and synthesized through each literary period in the next content of the dissertation. The people-closeness ideology formed during the eight hundred years of literature has become a proud spiritual product, creating the soul and strength of the Vietnamese nation. 13 3.2. The people-closeness ideology in literature under the Ly 3.2.1. The respect for the people and their wishes Praising the deep compassion for the people which is always bringing the people prosperous lives is an outstanding content of literature under the Ly. In this era, coupled with the task of protecting national independence from the foreign invaders in the North, it is the task of building and consolidating the kingdom and regime, creating a peaceful and prosperous life for the people. Building a thriving country means having a kingdom that suits the people. To build a safe and peaceful country, to bring happiness and prosperity to the people‟s lives, first of all, there must be good and right leaders. It is the request, aspiration, and desire of the people. Therefore, the change of the Tien Le which was weakened, and the selection and support of the Ly to lead the country were inevitable and in accordance with the wishes of the people as well as of all classes of people in society. The poetry works directly referring to this problem have Quoc tu (Character "quoc"), Yet bang thi chung (Hang up the board to clearly show everyone) by Nguyen Van Hanh (Zen Master Van Hanh); Nam Quoc Son Ha (Anonymous). In terms of political commentary, there are Khuyen Li Cong Uan (Khuyen Li Cong Uan), Xa Thue Chieu (Decree on tax exemption) by Li Thai Tong; Ngo dai han, vi ta huu bach quan (In cold spell, teold the left and right wings) by Li Thanh Tong; Co dong Thien cong chua, vi nguc lai (The princess committed crime, being imprisoned); Lam Chung di chieu (Decree left at the time of death) by Li Nhan Tong, and so on. Two most typical works that clearly show the ideology of people-closeness under the Ly are: Thien do chieu by Li Cong Uan (9741028) and "Phat Tong lo bo van" (Declaration about fighting Tong) by Li Thuong Kiet. Not only praising the model of talented and patriotic kings who love the people, the literature at the end of the Li also spoke up a straight and stern voice that some kings went against the ideology of people-closeness, no longer "took the people as the root”, attached the importance to personal enjoyment rather than taking care of the people's lives (Gian Ly Cao Tong hieu van bi thiet chi thanh - Advise the King Li Cao Tong not to build a palace; "Truy hoi tien qua chieu" (Decree on apology); “Gian Li Cao Tong dai hung lau cac” (Advise King Li Cao Tong not to build the palace). These dissuasive voices, though not changing the dynasty, showed the wishes of the class of Confucian intellectuals about an ideal political foundation for the people. 3.2.2. A sense of responsibility towards the people Desire for a long-term national destiny and a fully happy life is a man's eternal aspiration. In order to obtain that, the king needs to use his virtue to rule and make people 14 admire, tame and believe. Poet Do Phap Thuan mentioned about his fervent aspirations in the poem “Quoc to” (Destiny of country). A unique feature in the Chieus and dissertations of the Li period is that they recorded quite directly the thought and emotional life of the Li king. The content of the Chieus in the Li period first focuses on expressing the king's sense of responsibility towards the people. Those are some of the recorded activities in history shown in: “Xa thue Chieu” (Chieu on tax exemption) of Li Thai Tong Ngo Dai Han, vi ta huu bach quan (Experiencing extreme cold weather, tell the courtiers) of Li Thanh Tong; Co dong Thien cong chua, vi nguc lai (Looking at the princess Dong Thien, tell the guard to come); “Lam chung di Chieu” (Chieu left at the time of death) of Li Nhan Tong. The second content in the Chieus and dissertations in the Li period is to express the requirements of morality and quality, self-cultivation consciousness, sense of responsibility towards the people and the country. It may be the request of the people to the king, but it may also be the request of the kings to themselves. This content is shown in “Thien ha hung vong tri loan tri nguyen luan” of Nguyen Nguyen Uc; “Lam chung di Chieu” (Chieu left at the time of death) of Li Nhan Tong; “Lam chung chuc Thai tu” (Tell the Prince at the time of death) of Li Anh Tong; Truy hoi tien qua Chieu, (Chieu of apology ) of Li Cao Tong,… 3.3. The ideology of the people-closeness in Tran’s literature 3.3.1. Taking people as the root and prioritizing tolerance to people in the Thinh Tran dynasty From a political - historical perspective, there are rarely any feudal monarchies in which the mandarin kings behave in harmony with the people like in the Thinh Tran dynasty. During the war against the Nguyen - Mong as well as the construction and development of the country, the ideology of the people-closeness is reflected in the understanding of people's aspirations for the peace and independence of the country. These contents are expressed through poems Tung gia hoan kinh su (Companioning the king to capital) of Tran Quang Khai; Nghe An hanh dien (Visiting Nghe An) of Tran Minh Tong; typical dissertation is Du chu ti tuong hich van (Hich of telling generals). Tran Quoc Tuan not onLi expressed the role and independent aspirations of the people in the famous Hich, he also earnestLi left his courageous words Lam chung di chuc (Wills before death). Phus of the Tran dynasty praised the decisive role of the human factor in the Tran‟s victories (Bach Dang giang phu - Phu of Bach Dang river of Truong Han Sieu; Thien Hung tran phu (Phu of Thien Hung town) of Nguyen Ba Thong; Canh Tinh phu (Phu of Canh Tinh star) of Dao Su Tich,... Even in the works of the temple like Cu tran lac dao phu (Phu of happy world) 15 of Tran Nhan Tong or Vinh Van Yen tu phu (Phu of Van Yen temple) of Li Dao Tai (Huyen Quang),… the above contents are also shown clearly. After the fight against Nguyen, Tran dynasty built a prosperous country. The ideal of helping people, way of ruling country, responsibility and morality of the king and the quality and responsibility of the scholar ,… are crucial issues to be raised. In lyric poetry, inspiration about the people is expressed in the poetic vibes of the artist's soul (Thien Truong van vong - Watching the sunset at Thien Truong; Giving North emissary Li Tu Dien (Giving North emissary Li Tu Dien); Tong Bac su Ma Hop, Kieu Nguyen Lang (Seeing off North emissary Ma Hop, Kieu Nguyen Lang) of Tran Nhan Tong; Giving North emissary Sai Trang Khanh, Li Chan Van dang (Giving North emissary Sai Trang Khanh, Li Chan Van) of Tran Quang Khai. It can be said that the ideology of the people-closeness has become the basis of the way of ruling the country in Tran's dynasty. Respecting the people, taking the people as the root, being tolerant to people along with reassuring-people and for-people policies have laid the foundation for Dai Viet to have a stable, affluent life, strong army, rich people, strong country. 3.3.2. Having pity on the people and on the world in the Van Tran dynasty One of the most obvious manifestations of the ideology of the people in Tran poetry is the pity of the people and the grief before the contemporary world. Human suffering comes from many causes. Society disordered; the king neglected the country; the officials fought each other for money and grain; robbers emerged like bees; crop failure and drought occurred consecutive. That situation has caused Nho people were deep saddened, many Nho people raised their complaints. Pham Nhu Duc talks about the suffering of the people when the country is at war. He wrote “Ti tac son trung tru da” (hiding enemy in the mountain on the last day before Tet). Chu Duong Anh criticized, blamed the king for neglecting country and indulging in personal pleasures that make people destitute in “De Duong Minh Hoang duc ma do” (Crying for horse bath painting of Duong Minh Hoang). Pham Su Manh fervent wanted the king to “Phung tuyen de duc thiep kiem le” (Bringing the king himself to the people) in “De Gia Cat thach” (Crying for Gia Cat stone). Representing the voice of than dan - the su are the works of Tran Nguyen Dan (1325 - 1390) and Nguyen Phi Khanh (1355 - 1428). Tran Nguyen Dan's poetry repeated mentioned the word “dan”; at times, he called the people thuong sinh, dan sinh with implications like tears of pity. He expressed the helplessness of the royal courtier to all the people in many Lirical poems with a melancholy voice. Nguyen Phi Khanh who has a living condition closer to the people directly spoke up the people's suffering with infinite compassion. He expressed a fierce criticism towards the 16 brutal, greedy rulers that pushed the people into a miserable situation.. In the context of the country crisis and chaotic times, many intellectuals in the late Tran dynasty expressed their ideals and responsibilities to help their people and their country. This is said more than in Phu: Thien thu kim giam phu (Thousand year shinning mirror); De gia Cat thach (Crying for Gia Cat Stone) of Pham Su Manh; Can Chinh lau phu (Phu of Can Chinh) of Nguyen Phap. To Tran Nguyen Dan, it was a shame of a great mandarin to be aware of his own helplessness in the face of the turmoil, for Nguyen Phi Khanh it was questioning about the responsibility of the martyr to help the people. Sharing the same ideal with Tran Nguyen Dan, Nguyen Phi Khanh's poetry not onLi stops at the lamentations and pity, but also shows a burning and ardent will to bring enthusiasm to help people and help the country. Summary of chapter 3 In this chapter, we have conducted a survey of the poetic works of the Li - Tran period that expressed the ideology of the people. FirstLi in the Li dynasty, the inspiration for composing on the people-closeness was expressed in the contingent of authors from many social strata at that time: king, generals to many intellectuals, most notably the compositions of Zen masters. They gave the ideology of the people-closeness a unique color because religious inspiration was inseparable from the destiny of the country and the people. Next is the Li literature, the topic of the people-closeness in Tran literature is expressed in two phases, mainly the Liric poetry genre. During the Tran prosperity, with victories in the war against the Mong - Nguyen and the aim of defending the national independence, was the main reason why poetry in this period emphasized the status and role of the people. At the end of the Tran period, due to the deterioration of feudalism, literature aimed at the people with a deeper, more lyrical sound, both have pity for the people and have pity for the world at the same time showing a deep sense of the responsibility of the scholars towards the people. The typical authors of this period are Tran Nguyen Dan and Nguyen Phi Khanh. In general, as the opening period of national literature, Li - Tran poetry has actively contributed to the formation of the ideological - artistic traditions of the literature. 17 CHAPTER 4 PEOPLE-CLOSENESS IDEOLOGY IN LITERATURE IN THE XV CENTURY 4.1. The ideology of people-closeness in literature in the first half of XV century 4.1.1. Having pity on people, emphasizing the role of people's strength in literature during the Lam Son uprising The affirmation of the role of “dia linh, nhan kiet” and praise for the role of Le Loi leader of Lam Son insurgent army are to show solidarity power of the people in the fight against the invasion. This is a topic that appears quite a lot in poetry and Phu in the early Le's time, typically the authors: Nguyen Mong Tuan, Nguyen Trai, Li Tu Tan, Trinh Thuan Du. It can be surely said that Nho people and intellectuals such as Nguyen Trai, Nguyen Mong Tuan, Li Tu Tan wanted that through literature they discreetLi and tactfully remind the emperors. From the founding king like Le Thai To, the next is Le Thai Tong to the throne - a young, long reigning career, so the lesson of the tradition of people's solidarity is extremeLi important. However, when the war came to a complete victory, the frontier was stable and the dynasty was strong, Le Thai To did things contrary to his relatives, doubting that the prominent figures were with the king. That leads to the fight against the Ming invaders. Therefore, the ideology of the people-closeness is not a one-way, unchanging thought, but sometimes it is subject to historical realities. 4.1.2. Awareness of the responsibility of the scholars towards the people After war, standing in front of the task of national construction and bring prosperous lives to the people, Le Thai To issued a Chieu of recruiting talented people to appeal to those who have the capacity, conscience and love for the country and the people to participate in building and consolidating the country. The poignant and progressive words in Le Loi's Chieu of recruiting talented people has strongly urged the enthusiastic people to join and help the country such as Nguyen Phu Tien, Nguyen Nghem, Nguyen Mong Tuan, Li Tu Tan, Nguyen Trai, ... The image of “Dai xuan” the country became the source of inspiration in the poetry of many artists at that time. Along with a Phu about Chi Linh mountain, the four authors Nguyen Trai, Nguyen Mong Tuan, Li Tu Tan, and Trinh Thuan Du all appreciate the philosophy of for-people of “thinh duc”, “dai duc” of General Le Loi that made the Minh victory over. In general, the ideology of people-closeness of the authors of the Lam Son uprising was shown a rich and progressive way. It is not a vague, general perception but emerges from the reality of the country. It elevates the strength and position of the people, plays the role of the people, always thinks about its responsibility to the people. The authors of this period reflect the reality of history as well as its requirement. 18 4.1.3. The ideology of people-closeness, people-respect and people-appriciation in Nguyen Trai's compositions For Nguyen Trai, the country is associated with the people and vice versa. Patriotism must go hand in hand with humanity and towards the innocent. To save the country is to first save the people from foreign oppression. "Eliminate violence, make people peaceful" is a flag that is raised high in the resistance war against Minh's invasion. At the same time, it is also the political line that Nguyen Trai pursued during the nation's construction period. Nguyen Trai's love for the people and his people-cloness point of view had many progresses compared to Confucianism. Uc Trai deeply sympathized with the working class - the lowest class in feudal society - always subjected to oppression, especially under the domination of the Minh. He called them "the black people", "the red children" sincerely; strongly condemns the brutal invaders who have inflicted pain on innocent people (Dai cao binh Ngo, Quan trung tu menh tap). In Lam Son thuc luc, Chi Linh son phu and in the later chieu, bieu under the Le dynasty, Nguyen Trai – who always have the sympathy for innocent people - pointed out their miserable mistakes. If in Nom poetry, the patriotism of the nation and the love for people was so impetuous and fiercely motivated as "nuoc trieu dong" flowed in the poets' enthusiastic heart, then in Chinese poetry, Uc Trai expressed his love for the country and people succinctly like pearls in the bottom of the ocean. Nguyen Trai mentioned a lot about the ideal of "patriotism and people-closeness" - an important content of Confucian theory. His poetry, however, is not a stiff repetition of existing theories, but an expression of depths of uneasiness. But his sympathy for the people is often placed in the big challenges and events of the country‟s political development and of the period, and at times fell into painful tragedy. The burning ambition for a society of King Nghieu Thuan, people of Nghieu Thuan of Nguyen Trai could not be fulfilled. But in the heart of Uc Trai, that is the sincere and earnest ideal to build a good society, in which the emperors are always take care of the people's life, considering people's life as their purpose. In Nguyen Trai's compositions, we also see a new point in the people-closeness ideology. That is the respect and gratitude he showed for the people. He not only considered the people as the first favor of his life, but also recognized the great power role of the people in carrying boats and flipping boats. In the arduous resistance war against the Minh invaders, that patriotic hero saw clearly the role of the people in making the nation's victory. Affirming the role of the manh class (exiled farmers), le (the servant), it is a great thought of Uc Trai in "Dai cao binh Ngo". Because of his respect for the people, such an official like Nguyen Trai always
