Why is it called Taosidency© ?
Tao Yuanming, also known as Tao Qian was a Chinese poet who lived during the Eastern Jin (317-420) and Liu Song (420-479) dynasties. He is considered to be one of the greatest poets of the Six dynasties period. Tao Yuanming spent most of his life idyllically living in a countryl house in the rural aera, reading, drinking wine, receiving the occasional guest, and writing poems in which he often reflected on the pleasures and discoveries of life in the countryside, as well as his decision to withdraw from civil service. His simple, direct, and liberal style showed on his unconventional literary for his time. However, his philosophy influenced the following generation artistically.
Tao Yuanming is regarded as the foremost representative of what would later be known as Pastoral Poetry, a style got inspiration in the beauty and serenity of the Mother Natural. Thank to his inspiration, we named this program with his name.
