Thirty years ago the posters on the Shanghai public transport system screamed Maoist slogans. For the past 10 years they have been hard-sell advertisements for cosmetic surgery clinics and cars. But from next month a more poetic tone will be struck by verses from Blake, Wordsworth, Michael Bullock and Kathleen Jamie.
In a sign of changing priorities, the Shanghai metro will display poems by four British poets in a groundbreaking cultural exchange between the world’s two most popular languages and its oldest and newest subway networks.
