This chapter examines the landscape poems of the Yongming poets. It explains that contrary to popular imagination, the identity of Yongming poets as courtiers did not confine their vision only to rare things, ornate objects, or artificial settings within the court. The chapter highlights the influence of Xie Lingyun on the Yongming poets, arguing that their landscape poems presented the unique question of what the landscape really means to a courtier-poet and offered a much-needed opportunity for understanding the changes in landscape representation during the Qi-Liang period.

Keywords:   landscape poems, Yongming poets, Xie Lingyun, courtier-poet, landscape representation, Qi-Liang period
