Su Shih(1036-1101), one of the well-known Tz'u-poets of the Sung Dynasty, contributed greatly to the development of the Tz'u genre. His most outstanding, and most popular, Tz'u-poems were primarily composed during his five years of exile to Hwan Chow. Among these, five "Wan-his-sha" poems in particular reflected his life- style, feelings and thoughts during this period. As for the use of imagery, white, green and red express the poet's deepest emotions of delight, lightheartedness and enthusiasm, respectively; the allusions are succinct and rich in meaning; the syntactic and semantic structures are primarily inductive, deductive, antecedent-consequent and abstract-concrete, and involve the skillful organization of words. Most of all, by mixing different methods within a single structure, these five Tz'u-poems are, in aesthetic terms, remarkably diverse. These five poems are therefore the ones of the most important works of Su Shih.
