About Yang Wanli

Yang Wanli was a Chinese poet. He was one of the "four masters" of Southern Song Dynasty poetry. Written during the final exile of the Song to Hangzhou, his poems celebrate the beauties and mysteries of nature, flora and fauna, much as the famed Song painters did. But they also querulously and wittily illuminate the annoyances and pleasures of everyday life. Here are some of his best texts translated in english.
