Du Fu in youth time was a totally different figure from his image in an average Chinese mind. This poem not only reflected a great time , but a brave young man with great ambition, which might be the most great time in Chinese history and most ambitious dream expressed by a poem.

The importance of the East Sacred Mountain or Tai Mountain was analysed in depth, which is a key to understand this poem.

望岳
杜甫

岱宗夫如何?
齐鲁青未了。
造化钟神秀,
阴阳割昏晓。

荡胸生曾云,
决眦入归鸟。
会当凌绝顶,
一览众山小。
