The Chinese poet Xu Zhimo (1897-1931) was a research student at King's College in 1921-2. He discovered English romantic poets like Keats and Shelley and took their influence to China where he helped to develop modern Chinese poetry. In 1928 he revisited King's College and wrote one of the most famous poems in China - 'Saying Good-bye to Cambridge Again'. Today a Beijing marble stone engraved with the first and last two lines of this poem lies near the bridge in King's College where the River Cam runs through the College.
