Wei Ying-wu

Although T’ang dynasty poet Wei Ying-wu was not well known during his lifetime, Chinese literary critics have since ranked him with the likes of accomplished poets such as Tu Fu, Li Po, Wang Wei and Meng Hao-jan. Some scholars have even placed him above those revered poets,for his ability to describe a landscape or a natural setting, while conjuring the moods of seclusion and serenity.
