With others they become known as the “Misty Poets.” The exhibition includes rare later editions of Today, poetry from the movement, praise from the world press, translations by John Rosenwald, curator of the exhibit, and Ann Arbor’s photographic portraits of the poets, who collectively create a new Chinese literature.
