端午节是中国最传统的节日之一,它已经有上千年的节庆史了。那么,在端午节漫长的历史中,蕴藏着什么样的故事呢?

Having been celebrated for thousands of years, the traditional Chinese festival comes with numerous tales and legends attached to it. The most famous and widely accepted story of Duanwn’s origin comes with the story of the 3rd century BC poet, Qu Yuan.

中国的最悠久的传统节日一般都与传说故事有关,端午节也不例外。最广为人知也被普遍接受的传说版本,莫过于公元前3世纪的诗人——屈原了。

Qu’s life is documented in Shiji, or Records of the Grand Historian, which was written from 109 to 91 BC. According to Shiji, Qu was a highly intellectual and respected royal servant who was also a loyal confidante of the King of Chu State (one of the main states in the Warring States Period of China).

屈原的生平在公元前109年到公元前91年间写就的史记中有记载。根据史记,屈原是一位高级知识分子和一位忠于战国时楚国王室的大臣。
