Jia Dao followed in Du Fu＇s footsteps in the respect of poetic style,language,antithesis,syntax,etc. He made some innovation intentionally and wrote a lot of excellent five-word rhythm poetry. However,due to the growth environment,his own wit and other conditions,Jia Dao seeks different ways and novelty blindly,so that his poetry is not as good as Du Fu＇s for lacking lingering charm and cathartic beauty,and gives us arduously seeking,secluded and astringent feeling.
