Poetry and Conflict

International Poetry Nights in Hong Kong 2015 [box set of 21 chapbooks]

Edited by Bei Dao, Shelby K. Y. Chan, Gilbert C. F. Fong, Lucas Klein, Christopher Mattison, and Chris Song

The Chinese University Press

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.
