Book Description

When this was originally published in 1950 this was the fullest biography of one of China’s greatest poets that had ever appeared in any language. It tells the story of the poet’s life against the background of contemporary history and, in doing so, gives a brilliant picture of Chinese life in the eighth century A.D. – during a period of the Tang Dynasty, fertile in great poets, such as Wang Wei, Tu Fu and Mêng Haojan.
