Li Bai (, L? Bi or L? B; lived 701 — 762), formerly known in the West by the transliteration Li Po, was a major Chinese poet. He is regarded as one of the greatest poets in China's Tang period, which is often considered China's "golden age" of poetry. He was part of the group of Chinese scholars called the "Eight Immortals of the Wine Cup" in a poem by fellow poet Du Fu. Approximately 1,100 poems attributed to Li Bai remain today., including thirty-four in the popular anthology, Three Hundred Tang Poems.

Li Bai travelled extensively "looking for patrons", became well known for his consumption of wine, served for brief periods under the emperor, and made his living through his poetry. He died from illness.

In China, his poem "Quiet Night Thoughts", reflecting a nostalgia of a traveller away from home, has been widely "memorized by school children and quoted by adults".

In the West his influences include many translations, adaptations, and much inspiration.
