In this sampling of 14 contemporary Chinese poets, Barnstone, who spent a year teaching at the Beijing Foreign Studies University in the mid-1980s, brings together the works of "Misty Poets" and their successors. The "Misty Poets" wrote from 1979 to 1989, when the political and literary climate in the People's Republic of China loosened up and allowed individualism, albeit often obscure in theme. The works of their successors, called the "Post-Misty Poets" here, sometimes express new levels of internationalism and sensuality. A few of these poets have suffered imprisonment, and alienation and death are frequent themes in their poetry. The book includes an essay by Barnstone on translation, short biographical sketches of each of the poets, and an introduction to the political history of China in the 1980s, interwoven with an explanation of the departure from Marxist literature found in the poetry of that period. The translation is flowing and the sample chosen large enough to be representative, recommending this volume for both lay readers and specialists.
