Hồ Xuân Hương (1772–1822) was a Vietnamese poet born at the end of the Lê dynasty. She wrote poetry using chu nom (Southern Script), which adapts Chinese characters for writing demotic Vietnamese. She is considered to be one of Vietnam’s greatest classical poet. Xuân Diêu, a prominent modern poet, dubbed her “The Queen of Nôm poetry.”
