Yang Lian is a Chinese poet associated with the Misty Poets and also with the Searching for Roots school. He was born in Switzerland in 1955 and raised in Beijing, where he attended primary school. His education was interrupted by the outbreak of the Cultural Revolution after 1966. In 1974 he was sent to Changping county near Beijing to undergo ''re-education through labor'', where he undertook a variety of tasks including digging graves. In 1977, after the Cultural Revolution had ended and Mao Zedong had died, Yang returned to Beijing where he worked with the state broadcasting service. Yang began writing traditional Chinese poetry while working in the countryside, despite this genre of poetry being officially proscribed under the rule of Mao Zedong. In 1979, he became involved with the group of poets writing for ''Today'' (Jintian) magazine, and his style of poetry developed into the modernist, experimental style common within that group.
