Xin Qiji

Xin Qiji (28 May 11403 October 1207) was a Chinese poet and military leader whose ci (poems written to existing musical patterns) are considered by many critics to be the best of the Southern Song dynasty (1127–1279).


  • 众里寻他千百度,蓦然回首,那人却在,灯火阑珊处。
    • A thousand times I search for her in the crowd
      And, suddenly turning my head,
      Discover her where the lantern lights are dim.
      • In Poetry and Prose of the Tang and Song, trans. Yang Xianyi and Gladys Yang (Alma Classics, 1984), p. 300
