古诗文中猿啼意象详解
Variety of citations for weeping/crying/howling apes.

“猿啼”,声噭噭(音叫),高急之声,似哭似号,闻之令人伤心。谢灵运《登石门最高顶》:“噭噭夜猿啼。”郦道元《三峡》:“每至睛初霜旦,林寒涧肃,常有高猿长啸,属引凄异,空谷传响,哀转久绝。故渔者歌曰:‘巴东三峡巫峡长,猿鸣三声泪沾裳。’”古代诗歌中写到猿啼时多指哀音。诗人心中的哀怨、愁苦、凄怆、孤寂无以出之,故借猿啼而写出。

李白《远别离》:“海水直下万里深,谁人不言此离苦!日惨惨兮云冥冥,猩猩啼烟兮鬼啸雨。”李白这首诗开头即写娥皇、女英二女哭舜的故事。二女心中的离别之苦是何种程度呢?李白先用夸张,说这苦有万里之深;再从视觉写,这苦犹如日月无光,乌云惨淡;又从听觉写,这苦恰似昏昏烟雾中听到猩猩啼哭,淫雨霏霏中听到魔鬼长啸。猩猩即猿的一种。
