I am looking for someone to assist with notes on the background and allusions contained in the verses of poems #129-320 of the 300 Tang Dynasty poems. This is not a translation job; I am just looking for the explanation of the background of each poem, allusions contained within the verses, and an explanation of anything in the verses that might not be understandable from a literal reading of the characters.
