Selected Poems: Po Chu-I Paperback / softback


Po Chu-I lived from 772-846 AD, rising from humble beginnings to high government office.

Although some of his most famous poems are those of social and moral protest, many of his finest are private and meditative; he was a recluse at heart and spent many years in relative solitude.

He is regarded by many Chinese as their greatest poet, but his poems have been known in the West only through scattered versions by Arthur Waley and others.
