Li Qingzhao


Li Qingzhao

▪ Chinese poet
Wade-Giles romanization  Li Ch'ing-chao , literary name (hao)  Yi'an Jushi , also called  Li Yi'an 
born 1084, Jinan, Shandong province, China
died after 1155, Jinhua, Zhejiang province

      China's greatest woman poet, whose work, though it survives only in fragments, continues to be as highly regarded as it was in her own day.

      Li Qingzhao was born into a literary family. In 1101 she married Zhao Mingcheng, a noted antiquarian, but their marriage was cut short in 1129 by his death during their escape from the Juchen dynasty's takeover of Kaifeng, the capital of the Song dynasty. Continuing alone, she arrived at Hangzhou by 1132. Two years later she fled to Jinhua, where she died, probably after 1155.

      Li Qingzhao produced seven volumes of essays and six volumes of poetry, but unfortunately all her work is lost except for some poetry fragments. She wrote ci poetry, a song form. Her poetry is noted for its feminine sensibility and striking diction.
