  1. Ou Yang Hsiu was apparently very good friends with my 11th century drinking buddy Mei Yao-Ch’en! He seemed to be the Andrew Marvell of his time, able to weather political tempests a bit better than some of his contemporaries while still able to knock out a memorable verse here and there. Not a bad life!

      • Wonka is one of my favorites. What I meant is that I should have said Milton was Mei to Marvell’s Ou-yang, given that our Sung dynasty friends beat them to the punch by a couple-five hundred years or so.

        Wang Wei…Willy Wonka…hmmm…
