Su Shi (1037-1101) is the greatest poet of the Song Dynasty, a man whose writings and image defined some of the enduring central themes of the Chinese cultural tradition. Su Shi was not only the best poet of his time, he was also a government official, a major prose stylist, a noted calligrapher, an avid herbalist, a dabbler in alchemy, and a broadly learned scholar.The author shows how this complex personality was embodied in Su Shi's work and traces the evolution of his poems from juvenilia to the poems written in exile in Huangzhou, where Su settled on a farm at East Slope.
