Chapter Summary

In spite of Ho Ching-ming's reduced literary production during the last years in Shensi, in one poem at least he met the greatest of the T'ang poets, Tu Fu, on his own ground in a poem probably written on his way back over the mountains to Sian. There are three Tu Fu poems that are closely related to Ho's "Shrine of Radiant Ardour". In comparing Ho's poem with Liu Yü-hsi's, Yokota Terutoshi has pointed out that Ho Ching-ming shifts his attention from Liu Pei to the present scene halfway through the poem, while Liu Yü-hsi moves from Liu Pei to the future of his state between the halves of his. It may be that Ho's health was already failing. There is a sequence of poems that can be plausibly assigned to the winter of 1520, and the very first of these refers to Ho's poor health.
