Never a modest man, Du Fu comes to identify with the martyred poet of "Lamentations," the noble protagonist in China's prototypical tragedy of a virtuous man destroyed by unkind times. Eliot advised, "Old men should be explorers. Báiyè 白夜 (white night) also does not show up in any Chinese/Japanese Buddhist dictionary I've seen, and the encyclopedic Hànyǔ dàcídiǎn 漢語大詞典 (basically the OED of Chinese) makes no reference to Buddhist or Indian lunar calculations in its entry on the term. It seems unlikely that Dù Fǔ would've used such an obscure term in the poem here.

David R. McCraw has written the first serious book-length study in the West of the art of Du Fu (712-770), China's greatest poet. Dr. McCraw introduces, translates, explicates, and analyzes 115 of the regulated octaves Du Fu composed during the last and most productive decade of his life. Written while Du Fu was a refugee in southern China, these poems are among the most original, influential, and lyrically beautiful in all of Chinese culture. Generally regarded as the most allusive and complex of Chinese classical poets, Du Fu is the recognized supreme master of the regulated octave - and the most difficult to rener adequately to a Western audience. McCraw's accomplished translations bring the poet to light in a rare combination of accuracy and artistry. Without compromising a scrupulous adherence to the literal meaning of the original, McCraw has managed to convey to the reader a sense of what he calls the "music" of Du Fu's verse. Moreover, McCraw not only familiarizes the reader with the linguistic features and literary conventions of these poems; he also sets them into the broad context of both Chinese and Western history and culture.
