A homeward bound poem written in his last 3 years lifetime. It is one of the masterpiece with typical Chinese writing technique of 寓情于景, which is writing about surrounding views , reflecting the feeling of a person (normally the poet himself)through the views.
It is still hard to imagine how Li Bai can write this magnificent and joyful masterpiece , in a very poor condition , in his late years. I can only contribute this to the unique characteristics of Li Bai and the great time of prosperous Tang period, a strong dynamic country, with a mixture of culture and people, ambitious and capable people with a innocent heart.
归/还 is further explored per the different images and associated Chinese classic value.
朝辞白帝彩云间， 千里江陵一日还。 两岸猿声啼不住， 轻舟已过万重山。
