Enchanting English Poems: Cities and Memories
與 Kubrick Poetry Society 合辦
You take delight not in a city's seven or seventy wonders, but in the answer it gives to a question of yours.
- Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities
Memory is essential for us to understand our existence, and in the context of a city, our experience in it makes our impression of the place – a rather passive disposition that makes one want to argue we are instead consciously constructing impressions that serve our own ends. And do these impressions change through revisits, or does the place evolve into something else the longer it lives in the memory? We are delighted to have three distinguished poets join us in this exploration. They all reside in Hong Kong while carrying their own interpretations of the city from having lived ─ and written ─ in various places. Join us as we stroll down the memory lane where trees and buildings line up before fading into the distance, unless you prefer shooting down the highway with a broken rear view mirror.
