Translated by Derek Bryan. About the Author- "In the winter of 1931, on the recommendation of a schoolmate, he [Li-Po] obtained a job as a proofreader in a Shanghai printing house. In 1932, he was arrested by the Kuomintang reactionaries for taking part in a strike at the press and was sentenced to two and a half years in prison.
