By Li Bai but less popular than the other two Under the Fortress poems by Lu Lun(卢纶) and Xu Hun(许浑), could be a very good reference reflecting the flavor of different time, different poets: from romantic, positive Prosperous Tang period (li Bai) to sad realism in Late Tang period(Xu Hun). Lu Lun is sitting in the middle , a bit closer to Prosperous Tang period.
The famous wording Behead Loulan(斩楼兰) is analysed thoroughly.
