about

International Poetry Nights in Hong Kong 2015, "Poetry and Conflict," explores the multi-layered relationships between poetry and war. Acclaimed poets from war-troubled countries past and present engage "war" as a topic in their works, exchanging views and exploring the complex ways in which poetry has been able to play a role in the most violent events in human history. In doing so, they encourage the writers and readers of war-free Hong Kong to reflect upon the local milieu in a global framework.

This box set extends the single-volume anthology with twenty-one pocket-sized paperbacks encased in a fine paper box. Chapbooks can be purchased individually, with poems accompanied by English and/or Chinese translations.

Bei Dao is a poet and cofounder of the literary magazine Today. Shelby K. Y. Chan is assistant professor and Gilbert C. F. Fong is professor at the School of Translation, Hang Seng Management College. Lucas Klein is assistant professor and Christopher Mattison is a research fellow at the University of Hong Kong. Chris Song is a poet.
