20 Years of Hong Kong Verse

Event Closed

More Details

In this panel, local poets Louise Ho, Nicholas Wong, Michael O’Sullivan, Chris Song and Joshua Ip will join moderator Tammy Ho-Lai Ming for a discussion of Hong Kong poetry in the 20 years since the handover. What is Hong Kong poetry? Who is writing it? What is it about? What are the restrictions and possibilities? Does Hong Kong require a particular kind of articulation? Does Hong Kong, a unique place, activate a unique language construct? How can poets and readers cross the boundary between Chinese-language and English-language verse?
