Yuan Mei, a poet of the Ch'ing Dynasty (18th century), was the most popular poet in the 2,500-year-history of classical Chinese poetry. An iconoclast who dared promote poetry by women at a time when it was suppressed, and who wrote on forbidden subjects, he was deeply influenced by ch'an (Zen) Buddhist and Taoist philosophy.
