Genzi ڤl [pen name of Yue Zhong ] 1951-

He was among the founding coterie of the Misty Poetry tradition and a member of the Baiyangdian literary salon during the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). His poems were dispersed in informal had-copied versions before he ceased writing in 1973 when the Public Security Bureau and the Institute of Chinese Literature waded in. Of his seven long poems that are seminal to the Obscure Poetry genre, three remain today and are circulating on the internet in anonymity. Genzi spent many years as a bass singer for the Central Philharmonic Orchestra in Beijing and now resides in Washington, DC.
