    Tang poetry(táng shī 唐诗) refers to poetry written during China's Tang

Dynasty(táng cháo 唐朝), often considered as the Golden Age of Chinese

poetry. According to a compilation created under the Kangxi (kāng xī 康熙)

emperor of the Qing Dynasty(qīng cháo 清朝), there were almost 50,000 Tang

poems written by over 2,200 authors.

     

During the Tang Dynasty, poetry became an important part of social life

at all levels of society. Scholars were required to master poetry for the civil

service examinations, but the art was available to everyone. This led to a large record of poetry and poets, a partial record

of which survives today. Two of the most famous poets of the period were

Du Fu(dù fǔ杜甫) and Li Bai (lǐ bái 李白).
