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.

Please see the attached example of poems #112-114. Some poems, like #113, can be understood pretty well from a straight reading. In that case, I would only need some background notes. In the cases like #112 and #114, there are allusions that require explanation. Anyone with a good annotated Chinese version of the 300 Tang Poems should be able to find these references fairly quickly.

An electronic version of the 300 Tang Poems can be found on many sites, such as   [obscured]  /chinese/tangeng.html or
