From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Three Hundred Tang Poems (Chinese: 唐詩三百首pinyin: Tángshī sānbái shǒu) is an anthology of poems from the Chinese Tang Dynasty (618 - 907) compiled around 1763 by Sun Zhu (孫誅), the Qing scholar also known as Hengtang Tuishi (衡塘退士 "Retired Master of Hengtang"). Dissatisfied with the anthology Poems by a Thousand Masters (Qianjiashi 千家詩) compiled by Liu Kezhuang in the late Southern Song, Sun selected the poems based on their popularity and educational value. The collection has been popular ever since and can be found in many Chinese households. For centuries, elementary students memorized the poems and used them to learn to read and write. It contains poems by Du Fu, Li Bai, Wang Wei, Li Shangyin, Meng Haoran, Han Yu, Du Mu, Bai Juyi, Liu Changqing, Cen Shen, Wang Changling, Wei Yingwu, and more.[1][2]
