In the Tang Dynasty, it was an unprecedented costume for the development of ancient poetry in China. There were 48,900 ancient poems recorded in The Book of the Whole Tang Dynasty alone. This does not include many lost ancient poems. Therefore, historians have been arguing about the number of ancient poems in the Tang Dynasty. According to the latest literature records, with the development of many new ancient books, the number of Tang poems has further increased. Among them, there is a first-hand narrative poem, which has become a famous love narrative poem in history with its rich and gorgeous rhetoric, melodious narrative techniques and well-known good sentences. It is Bai Juyi's Song of Eternal Sorrow. With its refined language, The Song of Eternal Sorrow has shaped the touching love story between Emperor Xuanzong of the Tang Dynasty and Yang Yuhuan, the imperial concubine of the Tang Dynasty. It is a long narrative poem with 120 sentences, all of which are composed of seven-character rhythmic poems, which makes the poem itself look rhythmic and neat.
