Li Bai (李白701 – 762) was a major Chinese poet of the Tang dynasty poetry period. Regarded as one of the greatest poets of the Tang Dynasty, often called China's "golden age" of poetry, Li Bai was both a prolific and a profound poet, as well as one who stretched the rules of versification of his time. Li Bai's poetry has been much esteemed from his lifetime through the present day. His influence also extends to the West through many translations, adaptations, and much inspiration.
Li Bai（701—762），whose courtesy name was Tai Bai (Grand Whiteness, 太白) & literal name was Qinglian Jushi (Lay Buddhist of Green Lotus, 青莲居士), was a world-famous representative of Chinese ancient literature, especially in the realm of classical poem, which in China is extensively called Tang Shi, or Poem of Tang Dynasty, & he was highly crowned to be The Immortality of Poem & Poetic Swordsman.
Li Bai (705 – 762), also known as Li Po, was a Chinese poet acclaimed from his own day to the present as a genius and romantic figure who took traditional poetic forms to new heights. He and his friend Du Fu (712–770) were the two most prominent figures in the flourishing of Chinese poetry in the mid-Tang Dynasty that is often called the "Golden Age of China".
