柳如是 Liu Rushi

柳如是 Liu Rushi
Liu Rushi (Chinese: 柳如是; pinyin: Liú Rúshì; Wade–Giles: Liu Ju-shih), also known as Liu Shi, Liu Yin and Yang Yin (1618–1664), was a famous courtesan in the late Ming dynasty who married Qian Qianyi at the age of 25. She committed suicide on the death of her husband. She was a famous poet, famously exchanging verses with Chen Zilong, and was noted for her painting.[2]

She was friends with fellow courtesan Chen Yuanyuan, who was the concubine of Wu Sangui.[1]

During her life Liu was a prolific poet, publishing four collections of her work before the age of 22.[2] Her calligraphy was noted for its bold, masculine strokes,[1] using the "wild-grass script" style.[5] Her solo anthologies included Songs from the Mandarin Duck Chamber and Poems Drafted by a Lake, and her poetry was published alongside her husband's in a number of his works.

西湖 West Lake

Author: -- 柳如是 Liu Rushi
The weeping willows stand east of the curtained bowers;
Orioles and butterflies pass through the faded flowers.
But peach blossoms on Cold Food Day are beautified
By beauties living or buried by the lakeside.
