林则徐 Lin Zexu

林则徐 Lin Zexu
Lin Zexu (30 August 1785 – 22 November 1850), courtesy name Yuanfu, was a Chinese scholar and official of the Qing dynasty.

He is most recognized for his conduct and his constant position on the "moral high ground" in his fight, as a "shepherd" of his people, against the opium trade in Guangzhou. Although the non-medicinal consumption of opium was banned by the Yongzheng Emperor in 1729,[1] by the 1830s, China's economy and society were being seriously affected by huge imports of opium from British and other foreign traders based in the city. Lin's forceful opposition to the trade on moral and social grounds[2] is considered to be the primary catalyst for the First Opium War of 1839–42.[3] Because of this firm stance, he has subsequently been considered as a role model for moral governance, particularly by the Chinese.

出嘉峪关感赋 The Westernmost Stronghold

Author: -- 林则徐 Lin Zexu
The hundred-foot-high Great Wall bars the western sky;
Having journeyed for miles and miles, I stop my steed.
The endless battlements join proud trees far and nigh;
The surrounding walls weigh on clouds flying with speed.
Steep Heaven's Mountain stands level with the stronghold;
The boundless desert come in view puzzles my eyes.
Who says the Eastern Pass is strongest as of old?
Looking back, I find only a mole-hill rise.
