    Li Bai/Rihaku

    Rihaku, also known by other names including Li Bai and Li Po, was a Chinese poet of the Tang Dynasty, living between 701 and 762. He left his home in Central Asia around 725 to wander the Yangtze River Valley, writing poetry about his own life. He was a great drinker and free spirit, who influenced later poets of the twentieth century, particularly Ezra Pound.
