Wang Zhihuan Poems
Wang Zhihuan

Wang Zhihuan (simplified Chinese: 王之涣; pinyin: Wáng Zhīhuàn, 688–742), alternatively transliterated as Wang Tsu-huan, was a Chinese poet of the Kaiyuan era of Emperor Xuanzong of Tang.

Wang Zhihuan was once involved in a famous incident at a wine shop with fellow poets Gao Shi and Wang Changling, in which they agreed to compete as to which of their poems would be most sung by the professional entertainers who happened to show up in the course of that evening's entertainment.
