    About "Duo Duo Yu Li Ming"

    1. Duo Duo Yu Li Ming

      Duo Duo Beijing 1951 is the pen name of Chinese poet Li Shizheng, one of the great writers from the Misty Poet school of the 1970s He chose his name which means too much, too much from the given name of his daughter who died in infancy A former opera singer, he has been called a master of Chinese language who dreams between reality and the poetic realm Duo Duo began reading and writing poetry at the height of the Cultural Revolution In 1966 he was sent for reformation at a farm in Baiyangdian where he would, ironically, go on to meet such contemporary poets like Mang Ke, Shi Zhi along with Bei Dao, his classmate, who would officially form what would be later known as the Misty Poets literary movement Despite a lack of formal college education Duo Duo read widely as to what was available, and his writing was directly inspired by the likes of Baudelaire, Pushkin, Eliot, Tsvetaeva, Lorca and Plath His beginning poems were politically condemning in nature, short and elliptical, however his style shifted in the mid 1980s towards philosophical and essayistic constructions paying attention to syntax, repetition and rhetoric After the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, Duo Duo left China along with many other dissident poets Splitting his time between the UK, Canada and Netherlands, Duo Duo became widely translated and published many poems that dealt with the various meditations on exiled rootlessness Despite his Western influence and global reach, Duo Duo s poetry still remains grounded in classical Chinese prosody, carving out instead a new tradition of his own He returned to China in 2004 to great acclaim and is currently teaching at Hainan University.His translations into English include the verse collections Looking Out from Death From the Cultural Revolution to Tiananmen Square 1989 , Crossing the Sea 1998 and The Boy Who Catches Wasps 2002 as well as Snow Plain 2010 , a recent collection of short stories Duo Duo is the twenty first laureate of the Neustadt Prize and the first Chinese recipient of the award, having been nominated as a a resolute seer of some of the most basic, universal human values that have often been shadowed in our troubled modern time creativity, nature, love, dreams, and wishful thinking.
