Yang Li, a Sichuan-born poet, is considered one of the most prominent members of China’s avant-garde poetry movement. In the 1980s he was one of the founding members of the hugely influential “Fei Fei” poetry project, often translated as the “ Not-Not” movement. Yang has run a few independent poetry magazines, including Fei Fei until the mid-90s, and is currently editor-in-chief of Erasers, an independent yearly literary magazine. He also writes novels, short stories, and essays. Among his print publications is Canlan (trans. Splendor), a 623-page tell-all chronicle of the avant-garde poetry scene in China during the closing decades of the last century.
