The Tang Dynasty, 619-906 AD, was one of the most prominent periods of Chinese wisdom and learning. It’s no coincidence that the Tang and Song Dynasties flourished in the arts during the long times of unity and peace. The advances and heightened prominence of poetry were primarily due to the need for advanced literary skills in the competitive¬†imperial examinations.
