Dictionary Definition : Louisa Lynn--a unique specimen of the female gender of Homo Sapiens that has almost everything in common with another species: Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous. This specimen is always found with Asian (Filipino) descent and is a loyal friend to the "good side" during the epic Choco War. A common mutualistic companion found with this specimen is a Pokemon (most likely, the epic Arceus). This species is closely related to the species Homo Sapiens Tourterelleous. Common names include Lynn's Angel.

I have a project for Mandarin class and I was assigned to look up background information on the poem, and to tell what impact it had on society. (i.e., why Chinese children memorize it when they get to school, why it's considered one of Li Bai's best poems)

I can't find anything useful... headdesk

Dictionary Definition : Laura: Also known as "Solveig", her internet pseudonym, this female specimen of Homo Sapiens founded the Literary Cabinet world. One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

Hey Louisa,

I'll collect a few links here, maybe there is something in there which you could use:

http://ph.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070802064811AAN8OO1 (of course)

http://www.hornbill.cdc.net.my/e-class/oldchina/qt_inte.htm

Also, I found out that Li Bai is known for the unrestrained emotions he is able to express in very few words, which is - apparently - unusual.

Any help? Suspect

Thanks for that, Laura. :p
I've got some background info, even though it's not much, but I still need to know why his poems are so well-loved and what effect did it have on society.
