Image is an important concept in Chinese classical poetry, and the density of image is of great significance to the formation of poetic style. Wang Anshi's early poetic style belittled image and was regarded as the representative of argumentative poetry. However, in his "Nanjing poems", Wang Anshi deliberately increased the image density of his poems, and finally formed an elegant and exquisite style of poetry. Wang Anshi's reasonable arrangement of image density not only reflects his own poetic skills, but also makes an effective distinction between "Tang poetry" and "Song poetry".
