THE LIFE OF PO CH-I -BORN IN 772 AND PASSED AWAY IN 846. -PO WAS BORN WHEN CHINA HAD FOREIGN INVASIONS AND INTERNAL STRIFE. -DURING HIS TIME, HE FELT VERY SHOOK UP ABOUT WHAT WAS HAPPENING SO HE WROTE POEMS TO SPEAK ABOUT BEING AGAINST THE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC PROBLEMS THROUGHOUT HIS COUNTRY. -IN 883, PO WAS FORCED TO RETIRE HIS JOB AS A GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL AT AGE 61 BECAUSE OF HIS ILLNESS. HOWEVER, HE KEPT WRITING POETRY UNTIL HE WAS LITERALLY UNABLE TO

WRITE. PO CH-I AND HIS RELIGION. -The Buddist, Po Ch-I, is a smart man who becomes a government official because he was intelligent, But his illness gets him out of there. -Meanwhile, through the illness, Po ChI writes these poems called Sick Leave and At the End of Spring. -In Sick Leave he talks about the shame upon him that the Worlds dust

has been covering his Buddist culture/life. -At the End of Spring the mistaking Taoism religion tells you to not to live in the moment. But to know youre going to die. Therefore not living life to the fullest. SICK LEAVE In the story Sick Leave, Po Ch-I is under a deep illness, but through the

poets motivation he keeps writing. He talks about how his life as been covered up by daily tasks and duties of the normal world. Where the religion Buddhism needs full devotion and to not be in that World dust as said by him. Po Ch-I believes that when he saw the White Mountain rise, he felt shame due to the things he has done to cover it up.

AT THE END OF SPRING In this poem, Po talked about the rotation of the seasons, and how they tied to the Taoist belief. Taoist believe that you should live life knowing that youll die. But Po believes you should live

in the moment and it joined. Taoist life, by Pos interpretation, is a life not well enjoyed and being to be isolated from the world. LITERARY FEATURES In both poems, Sick Leave and At the End of Spring there are two symbols.

The first one is in Sick Leave and Po talks about seeing a White Mountian. The mountain representing a holy place as a Buddist. And when Po looked at it as he was in deep illness, he felt shame as his life was getting in the way of his religion. In At the End of Spring, the pear tree symbolizes the start of spring, The swallows symbolize spring as well. QUIZ TIME
