The CHP 8-Part series on the history of Tang Poetry concludes with this episode that looks at the lives of three more poets: Li He, Du Mu and Li Shangyin. And for an encore Laszlo will recite poems from all three of these greats. The Late Tang period of Chinese poetry was marked with all the signs of an imperial house in decline. It was a sad and melancholy time and quite a few Late Tang poems expressed the hopelessness felt during these sorrowful years.
