Statue of Premier Zhou

When he was young, he wrote the rhetoric of "Reading for the rise of China"; when he left 

his friends, he left a gift saying "Wish to meet when China takes off the world". Over 50 

years of revolutionary career, 26 years of prime minister's heavy duty, his name is always 

missed in our hearts.

From "For the Rise of China" to "Nanchang Uprising"

Then go to "Shili Changjie to send the Prime Minister"

Zhou Enlai's life

Frequently appearing in various textbooks

But what we know about him

And only stay at the appearance of these words

In fact, he is also an outstanding calligrapher

Once a person is too special in some aspects, it is easy to be labelled, and other aspects will 

be ignored or even covered up. For example, Zhou Enlai.

When these three words are mentioned, people will match up with prominent words such as 

"the people's good prime minister" and "founding leader". If I say that he is an excellent 

calligrapher, maybe the shadow of Mao Zedong's cursive script appears immediately 

in your mind. At least, the calligraphy circle has a final conclusion on Mao Zedong's 

calligraphy. However, for Zhou Enlai's calligraphy, the calligraphy circle has not attracted 

enough attention.

Fortunately, in recent years, there have also been some works containing Zhou Enlai's 

calligraphy and poems, giving us a chance to glimpse the other side of it outside of politics.

The monument to the People’s Heroes written by Zhou Enlai

Everyone is familiar with Zhou Enlai's calligraphy. The inscriptions such as "Monument to the People's 

Heroes", "Reference News", "People's Post", "Civil Aviation of China" and "China Customs" are 

everywhere. It is just because they are common and there is no clear inscription. People often do not 

associate it with "calligraphy". "Art" and "Zhou Enlai" are linked together.

"Reference News" and "China Customs" with Zhou Enlai's inscription

Looking at Zhou Enlai’s calligraphy, from the perspective of his development process, he was 

handsome and vigorous and virtuous in his calligraphy exploration period for students; the 

middle-aged calligraphy style was formed, hidden and unobtrusive, simple and solemn; the calligraphy-

making period in his later years was already Restrained and relaxed, majestic and majestic, full of 


The most moving part of Zhou Enlai's calligraphy is the natural and natural fun; this is the expression 

of his personality and talent. The pen is neither regular script nor action nor cursive, and regular script 

is also action and cursive. It is entirely my own style of writing and a sign of my soul.

Zhou En lai to write poetry

Zhou Enlai was born in 1898. He was in an era when imperialists invaded China one after another and 

gradually became semi-feudal and semi-colonial. Zhou Enlai's father went to Shaoxing to learn to be a 

master. His family was in decline due to the death of his grandfather who was the county magistrate. 

When Zhou Enlai was six months old, in order to comfort his critically ill uncle Yigan and aunt, his 

grandparents took charge, and his parents adopted him to the Yigan couple. After that, he called the 

heir mother, and his biological parents called the godfather godmother.

Zhou En lai Inscription for "World Knowledge"

Because he comes from a scholarly family, he is proficient in poetry and prose and knows everything. 

Regarding Zhou Enlai as his lifeblood, teaching him literacy, writing, recitation of poems, and detailed 

history, Zhou Enlai "listened tirelessly" until he was 5 years old to study in a private school. Zhou 

Enlai received a good education in this knowledgeable family environment.

Li Bai Poems Written by Zhou Enlai

At the age of 12, Zhou En went to school in Tieling and Shenyang in the northeast. His life and 

thoughts have undergone a key change. He learned a truth from Zou Rong's "Revolutionary Army" and 

"Shengjing Times", not only to fulfill his obligations to the family, but also to the country. So he asked 

the teacher in class: "What is the purpose of reading?" He replied loudly: "For the rise of China".

In 1917, before 19-year-old Zhou Enlai traveled east to Japan, he gave his classmate Guo Sining a 

message: "Wish to meet China and take off to the world", signed: "Di Xiangyu's parting prophecy". 

From this inscription, we can see the ambition of a 19-year-old enthusiastic youth.

Message to Guo Sining

A big wish, plus the difference between the size and the line and the script in a sentence, the ups and 

downs, highlighting his self-made calligraphy aesthetic pursuit. Among them, the traces of the two 

kings can be seen, but the influence of the Wei stele is even greater.

After being vigorous and upright in his youth, Zhou Enlai's calligraphy gradually became subtle and 

introverted, with less sharpness, but more solid and solid.

Zhou Enlai's calligraphy contains solid vigor

The upper and lower pictures should be Zhou Enlai's two most famous characters. The layout of the 

characters is magnificent and full of emotions, focusing on the hurt and grief caused by the "South 

Anhui Incident", but there is no feeling of anxiety. The characters in the signature are seriously 

distorted, but they use a lot of strength to hold the pen. . If you read it too much, it probably 

represents a kind of anger, and at the same time it is mixed with forbearance.

Inscription for the martyrs who died in the Southern Anhui Incident

It is worth mentioning that Zhou Enlai's inscription "South Anhui Incident".

On January 6, 1941, more than 9,000 members of the New Fourth Army in Southern Anhui as the anti-

Japanese team were suddenly attacked by about 80,000 people from the 7 divisions of the Kuomintang. 

Under the leadership of Ye Ting and Xiang Ying, they fought valiantly for 7 days and nights. In the 

end, there was a huge gap between the few, and the ammunition was exhausted, and most of them 

sacrificed heroically. Commander Ye Ting was captured, Deputy Commander Xiang Ying and Chief of 

Staff Zhou Zikun were killed after the break, and Director of the Political Department Yuan Guoping 

died. This is the Southern Anhui Incident that shocked China and foreign countries.

In response to this incident, Zhou Enlai was filled with righteous indignation and wrote: "Eternal 

injustice, a leaf in the south of the Yangtze River, in the same room, fighting each other, why is it 

urgent?" Between the lines, full of anger and strength.

Southern Anhui Incident
