BBC Radio 4 „In our time“: Tang Era Poetry

Logo BBC bei Wikimedia Commons„Melvyn Bragg and guests dis­cuss two of China’s great­est poets, Li Bai and Du Fu, who wrote in the 8th cen­tu­ry in the Tang Era. Li Bai (701–762 AD) is known for per­son­al poems, many of them about drink­ing wine, and for find­ing the enjoy­ment in life. Du Fu (712–770 AD), a few years younger, is more of an every­man, writ­ing in the upheaval of the An Lushan Rebel­lion (755–763 AD). Togeth­er they have been a cen­tral part of Chi­nese cul­ture for over a mil­len­ni­um, reflect­ing the bal­ance between the indi­vid­ual and the pub­lic life, and one sign of their endur­ing appeal is that there is rarely agree­ment on which of them is the greater.
With Tim Bar­rett (Pro­fes­sor Emer­i­tus of East Asian His­to­ry at SOAS, Uni­ver­si­ty of Lon­don), Tian Yuan Tan (Shaw Pro­fes­sor of Chi­nese at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Oxford and Pro­fes­so­r­i­al Fel­low at Uni­ver­si­ty Col­lege), and Frances Wood (For­mer Cura­tor of the Chi­nese Col­lec­tions at the British Library).“
