Bai Juyi

Bai Juyi or Po Chü-i (白居易): Chinese poet of the Tang dynasty. His poems are not cheerful, and were themed around his responsibilities as a governor of several small provinces to sympathise with his people. He is renowned in Japan as well, where he is called Haku Rakuten.

Bai Juyi


Collections of Juyi's poetry can be found in A Hundred and Seventy Chinese Poems (1919) and More Translations from the Chinese (1919), translated by Arthur Waley. A list of individual poems follows, with particularly well-known ones in bold. The title convention prefers the standard name for a poem, if there is one, and Waley's titling if there is not.
