He was an unlucky person in official community. He used to be demoted. He acted as many local administrators such as Hangzhou, Xuzhou, Chanzhou, Huangzhou and so on. His father and younger brother were also both the masters in literature. He was even killed by Emperor just for Wutaishi Case. He was often at odds with a political faction headed by Wang Anshi.

In Huangzhou, he lived at a farm called Dongpo (the "Eastern Slope"), from which he took his literary name. He died in Changzhou, Jiangsu province.
