The uncertainty whether there is the word “nostalgia” in DU Fu's poems which have been found so far has yet to be studied. Before DU's period, the poets ZHANG Zi-rong, CEN Shen and QIAN Qi of Tang Dynasty already introduced this word into their poems. And DU's work Seeing off Guests in Dongting of Sichuan with PEI Di in the Period of Early Plum Blossom was not the first nostalgic poem. His life cannot be summarized with the word “nostalgia”. Not all the poems he composed when he was in central Sichuan were full of depression, and focused on nostalgia. The nostalgic poems in ancient China had a long history, and many of them were master pieces. Therefore, DU is not the father of nostalgic poems and not famous for such poems either.
