[简析]

这是一首敕勒人唱的民歌,是由鲜卑语译成汉语的。它歌唱了大草原的景色和游牧民族的生活。

开 头两句“敕勒川,阴山下”,交代敕勒川位于高耸云霄的阴山脚下,将草原的背景衬托得十分雄伟。接着两句“天似穹庐,笼盖四野”,敕勒族人用自己生活中的 “穹庐”作比喻,说天空如毡制的圆顶大帐篷,盖住了草原的四面八方,以此来形容极目远望,天野相接,无比壮阔的景象。这种景象只在大草原或大海上才能见 到。最后三句“天苍苍,野茫茫,风吹草低见牛羊”是一幅壮阔无比、生机勃勃的草原全景图。“风吹草低见牛羊”,一阵风儿吹弯了牧草,显露出成群的牛羊,多 么形象生动地写出了这里水草丰盛、牛羊肥壮的景象。全诗寥寥二十余字,就展现出我国古代牧民生活的壮丽图景。

这 首诗具有北朝民歌所特有的明朗豪爽的风格,境界开阔,音调雄壮,语言明白如话,艺术概括力极强。宋诗人黄庭坚说这首民歌的作者“仓卒之间,语奇如此,盖率 意道事实耳”(《山谷题跋》卷七)。因为作者对草原牧民生活非常熟悉,所以能一下抓住特点,不必用力雕饰,艺术效果就很好。
