The Tang dynasty (618 - 907 AD), is celebrated as the greatest
moment in Chinese poetry, a time when poetry was highly rated, and
some of China's most famous poets were writing. Du Fu (712-770 AD)
is widely regarded as the greatest of these. He himself wrote that
he aimed to startle his readers, and in some of his more
avant-garde poems he combines and contrasts images in a way that
has an almost modernist feel to it. On the other hand, he also
enjoyed and celebrated the simple pleasures in life, and his
(apparently) lighter poems about friendship and his natural
surroundings show this clearly.
