Towards the end of the Sixties of the last century, Mang Ke, Genzi and Duo Duo were young students. During the Cultural Revolution, together with a large number of young people, they were sent to rural areas to become acquainted with and to learn about the living condition of a people, the Chinese people, who had to be encouraged in building a communist way to life. The experience in the rural areas will transform Mang Ke, Genzi and Duo Duo into poets. Already well-known while in Baiyangdian as the “three musketeers” due to their friendship, they will start a process of renovation of the Chinese contemporary poetry. After the mechanic rhythm of the political slogans, thanks to their contribution, Chinese poetry will gain a new vitality and a new form.
