9789629966959: Poetry and Conflict

The theme of International Poetry Nights in Hong Kong 2015 is "Poetry and Conflict," which explores the multi-layer relationships between poetry and war. Poetry has been generally recognized as the highest form of language, while war inflicts the most pains on the human history. IPNHK2015 invites the world-acclaimed poets from war-troubled countries in the past such as the United States (Anne Waldman, Peter Cole), Japan (Tawada Yoko, Mizuta Noriko), South Korea (Moon Chung-hee), Macedonia (Nikola Madzirov), Catalonia(Gemma Gorga), Portugal(Fernando Pinto do Amaral), Burma (Ko Ko Thett), Morroco (Mohammed Bennis), Mainland China (Wang Xiaoni), Taiwan (Chen Li), Hong Kong (Yin Jiang), and those of today such as Israel (Agi Mishol), Palestine (Ghassan Zaqtan, Najwan Darwish). These poets, who engage their works with "war" as a topic, are going to exchange views and explore the many layers where the equanimous poetry is able to play its role in the most violent events in the human history, and in so doing, encourage writers and readers of the war-free Hong Kong to reflect upon the local milieu in a global framework. Following the convening of IPNHK2015, Poetry and Conflict (Single-Volume Anthology) is a collection of selected works by these poets. The collection makes a treasured anthology of the finest contemporary poetry in trilingual or bilingual presentation.
