International Poetry Nights In Hong Kong
Ancient Enmity
Introduction 簡介
International Poetry Nights in Hong Kong (IPNHK) is an award-winning biennial poetry festival established by renowned contemporary Chinese poet Bei Dao. Since its debut in 2009 in Hong Kong, IPNHK has become the most influential series of international poetry events in the sinophone areas, delivering internationally acclaimed poets’ thoughts and ideas about poetry to China. Following its enormous success, IPNHK’s 2017 event is scheduled to happen during 22-26 November in Hong Kong, with the theme “An Ancient Enmity”. More than twenty poets and lyricists are invited to the event from different parts of the world to share and read their works. After the events in Hong Kong, the poets and lyricists will be divided into five groups and go on to join poetry activities held in five Mainland cities, namely Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Wuhan and Xiamen.

The following events will be held on the campus of The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and co-organized by HKUST Jockey Club Institute for Advanced Study and Division of Humanities:
