Du Fu

Du Fu


Du Fu (712-770, also known as Tu Fu) wrote during what is usually regarded as the golden age of Chinese poetry, the Tang Dynasty, more specifically the reign of the emperor Ming Huang (‘Brilliant Emperor’).

Despite his being often referred to as the greatest Chinese poet, a relatively small proportion of Du Fu's work is accessible in English.
