  Du Fu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Du Fu or Tu Fu (712–770) was a prominent Chinese poet during the Tang Dynasty.
Du Fu, who had been away from the city, took his family to a place of safety and attempted to join up with the court of the new emperor (Suzong), but he was captured by the rebels and taken to Chang’an.
Du Fu's conscientiousness compelled him to try to make use of it: he soon caused trouble for himself by protesting against the removal of his friend and patron Fang Guan on a petty charge; he was then himself arrested, but was pardoned in June.

 Plum Ruby Review | Fiction...Poetry...Art...Memoir...Travel...Life
Du Fu was a master of making new rules and playing with form (some Chinese critics argue, in fact, he changed the face of Chinese poetry for subsequent generations of writers and continued to highly influence poets well until the more modern literary revolution of the early 20th century).
Since Du Fu's work was largely unknown until three centuries after his death, little primary source material of Du Fu's life has survived and the facts surrounding his life are sparse: he was born in 712 A.D. in or near Luoyang (the present-day capital of Henan Province).
Du Fu's body of work can largely be divided into various times of prosperity and hardship and some of his most beautiful pieces are full of details of the common person and their suffering.

Fortunately because by this time Tu Fu had married, had children, and supported brothers, sisters, perhaps cousins: a "household of ten." The new job was fifth in rank in the Crown Prince's court, with a decent salary.
In 760, Tu Fu moves to Ch'ang-tu, where a neighbor had fled from a magistrate's post out of "desire for hermitage." In 762, the Brilliant Emperor was dead and once again Tu Fu was tempted to reconsider applying for office.
