Mao Zedong’s Soft Side
Mao, through his entire life, loved to write poetry—and is even said to have been a romantic poet. His poems may not be the best examples of Chinese poetry, but they are still considered to be excellent works. Here’s an excerpt from one of Mao’s poems called Yellow Crane Tower:
The yellow crane has long since gone away
,All that here remains is Yellow Crane Tower.
The yellow crane once gone does not return,
White clouds drift slowly for a thousand years.♥READ COMMENTS♥REBLOG THIS POST→
The Courtesan Poetess Executed for Murder
Yu Xuanji (roughly A.D. 844-868) grew up in the Tang Dynasty capital of Chang’an, where she lived and worked in the Pleasure District from an early age. Yu Xuanji adopted poetry as a personal art form and throughout her lifetime she wrote vivid, intensely emotional poems, around fifty of which survive today. She also had a book of poetry published during her lifetime but the works it contained have long since been lost.
Around the age of sixteen, Yu Xuanji became a concubine to Censor Li Yi. Li Yi’s wife became increasingly jealous though, and Li Yi eventually abandoned Yu Xuanji in the south of China, where she dwelt alone in the mountains for a while before returning penniless to Chang’an. She continued to work as a courtesan before entering the Xianyi Convent and training as a Taoist “priestess.” Amongst her duties as a priestess, she probably would have had to “entertain” gentlemen clients.
While living at the convent, she is believed to have become suspicious that a maidservant was having intimate relations with Yu Xuanji’s lover. This apparently caused her to fly into such a rage that she beat the maid to death and buried her in the garden, where her body was later discovered by the foul smell emanating from the earth. Yu Xuanji was arrested, tried for the maid’s murder, and executed by beheading. It is very possible that Yu Xuanji was falsely accused of the crime, though we will probably never know for certain. She was only around twenty-eight years old when she died.

Qin Shi Huang
Qin Shi Huang was the first emperor of China from 221 BC to 210 BC. He was paranoid, brutal, cruel and sadistic. He improvised and massacred his people. In his first year in power, over 120,000 families were forced to relocate from their homes. He burned almost all books and writings in China and had hundreds of scholars beheaded and buried alive. He improvised his people, farmers in particular, by raising taxes. At one point, a million men were put to work as forced labor to build 4,700 miles of roads. He created walls and other architects that paved the way for the Great Wall of China, but hundreds of thousands were worked, starved to death and murdered. Qin was obsessed of trying to become immortal, when scientists and scholars failed to find a way, he had 480 of them buried alive. Even in death, he was afraid that he would be attacked. He ordered a 3 mile wide mausoleum to be built that required 700,000 people, most of them were killed in the process. It is possible that he killed over 1 million people. Qin died in September 210 BC.♥READ COMMENTS♥REBLOG THIS POST→

She was a ruthless, cruel, sadistic and sexually depraved murderess who drove her people into chaos. She ordered tortures, executions and forced suicides on a daily basis. She had all of her rivals exiled or executed including the ex empress Wang. She also had members of her family executed including her niece, nephews and killed her newly born daughter. Other family members were exiled including her sons, in which one was eventually ordered to commit suicide. Wu had thousands of her people poisoned, strangled, mutilated, burned and boiled alive.
