Su Shi 苏轼 (1037AD – 1101AD), also known as Su Dong Po 苏东坡, was a Chinese writer, poet, painter, calligrapher, pharmacologist, gastronome, and a statesman of China's Song Dynasty 宋朝. A major personality of the Song era, Su Dong Po 苏东坡 was an important figure in Song Dynasty politics, aligning himself with Sima Guang 司马光 and others, against the New Policy party led by Wang Anshi. Su Dong Po once wrote a poem criticizing Wang Anshi's reforms, especially the government monopoly imposed on the salt industry and Su was exiled for political crimes. After a long period of political exile, Su received a pardon in 1100AD and was posted to Chengdu. However, he died in Changzhou, Jiangsu province while he was en route to his new assignment in 1101AD. After his death Su gained even greater popularity, as people sought to collect his calligraphy, paintings depicting him, stone inscriptions marking his visit to numerous places, and built shrines in his honor.
Su Dong Po's poetry has a long history of popularity and influence in China, Japan, and other areas in the near vicinity and is well known in the English-speaking parts of the world through the translations by Arthur Waley, among others. In terms of the arts, Su Dong Po has some claim to being "the pre-eminent personality of the eleventh century."
Liu Bo Wen (1311AD-1375AD) was a Chinese military strategist, philosopher, statesman and poet who lived in ancient China's late Yuan and early Ming Dynasty. He served as a key advisor to Zhu Yuan Zhang (朱元璋), the founder of the Ming dynasty, to help him overthrow the Yuan dynasty and unify China under his rule.
Liu Bo Wen dabbled in many fields of statecraft, philosophy, scholarly works, and military technology. His philosophical outlook was that of a skeptical naturalist, he was also known to be an expert in astronomy, calendrical science and Feng Shui (风水).
