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.
