Su Shih (1036-1101), was a native of Mei-shan, Szechwan province. His style name was Tzu-chan and his sobriquet was Tung-p'o. He is counted as one of the Eight Great Masters of T'ang and Sung prose and as one of the Four Great Masters of Sung calligraphy, and is considered the typical literati of the Sung dynasty. This manuscript is a poem composed by him during his banishment to Huang-chou after having been defeated at a political dispute.
