This is an anthology of poems written by Yang Lian, Jiang He, Han Dong, Yu Jian, Zhai Yongming, Zhang Zhen, Xi Chuan, and Hai Zi. These eight poets initiated the trends of elitist poetry, neo-realist poetry, women's poetry, and cosmopolitan poetry that dominated Chinese literature from the mid-1980s for almost two decades and remain a continuing presence even today. It documents the force of this body of powerful and innovative writing that influenced not only the development of China's contemporary poetry but also gave rise to the development of the "root-seeking," "neo-realist," "feminine," and "cosmopolitan" (or "intellectual") schools of fiction. This unique selection of poems has been determined, not by the suitability of the poems for translation into English or by what they reveal about the personal backgrounds of the poets, but by the poetic, aesthetic, and human qualities of the poems themselves.
