Tu Fu (AD 712–70) was born near the capital, of a family distinguished for service to the state. While Li Po seems to the Chinese to be a poet of the night and of man as a solitary animal in his dreams, Tu Fu is rather a poet of the day and of man in his other nature as a social animal. Tu Fu’s poems chronicle his life and times with social conscience and compassion, but also present a convincing, unselfconscious portrait of the man himself.
