Du Fu
From:衡阳新闻网 | Date Add in:2017-11-25 12:37:29 [A  A]




  Du Fu was born in 712,Xiangyang,China and died in 770,Hunan. He was a Chinese poet,often considered the greatest of all time.

  After a traditional Confucian education,he failed the important civil service examinations and consequently spent much of his life wandering,repeatedly attempting to gain court positions,with mixed success.His early poetry,which celebrates the natural world and bemoans the passage of time,garnered him renown.He suffered periods of extreme personal hardship,and as he matured his verse began to express profound compassion for humanity.An expert in all the poetic genres of his day,he is renowned for his superb classicism and skill in prosody,though many of the subtleties of his art do not survive translation.
