Kubrick Poetry •「從旁觀到介入」──葉英傑新書分享會

日期:2018325日下午4時至5
地點 :油麻地 Kubrick電影中心一樓講廳
主持:Florence Ng
嘉賓:葉英傑 周漢輝



「又或把注意力放回身下的泥土
   學習如何跟它妥協,如何

   讓自己繼續優雅地活著。」──《旁觀生活》〈阿里山神木〉

在這個手機即拍即享的年代,詩人葉英傑仍然堅持用文字慢慢調整和構築他的視角,不爭鳴,不宣示,始終維持冷靜的敏銳。來到他的第五本詩集《旁觀生活》,英傑為我們凝住了異地、家族、浮生的生命光影,伴我們體味細水長流的甘醇。

詩人自述:

葉英傑仍然記得第一首詩是什麼時候寫的,是在1989年2月5日,地點在廣州表姐的家中,那天是農曆年廿九,說的是不想年假過得這麼快,差不多要回港捨不得廣州的親友。之後在1992年開始拿青年文學獎(19、20、21、22、24屆)。那時候他的詩使用很多意象,有人說很超現實。之後被王良和抓去跟一班詩友一起談詩;這詩社是〈我們詩社〉。後來還有〈大學詩會〉(然而參與的時候他不再是大學生了)。後來憑〈散步〉拿2000年中文文學獎。此後他就揮不開〈散步〉了。〈散步〉是他第一首很自覺的,敘事成份很重的詩。經過多年努力,終於完成了《尋找最舒適的坐姿》及最新的《旁觀生活》這兩本詩集。這兩本詩集其實是二為一體的,都是有關家,有關各親友,有關生活。是的,葉英傑的詩,似乎都離不開一直圍繞的「人」,和生活。

Her poems have been included in the Best American Poetry 2015 and 2014 and have appeared in many literary journals, including Poetry, the American Poetry Review, the Chicago ReviewGrantaBoston Review, PloughsharesFenceCourt Green, and Lana Turner.

詩人 PoetShen Xingzhou (沈行舟)
語言 Language: English and Mandarin 




Shen Xingzhou (沈行舟), born in Hangzhou, studied English at Shanghai International Studies University, obtained her master’s degree in visual culture studies from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. She writes in both English and Chinese. Her poems have appeared in many literary magazines and newspaper supplements in Hong Kong.

Beside, her works of photography and handcrafts have been exhibited in many galleries in Hong Kong.


Hui is a book of poems written in Chinese and English. It may appear as a collection of poems, but it has the inner structure of a novel. Each poem is an independent story, mostly dark and dreamlike, but they relate to one another, weaving a larger story that echoes the theme Hui, , which means to circle. For her, the title refers her repetitive emotional return to the stories in the poems.

Kubrick Poetry • 六月 • 《魚的來歷》詩會

古典與現代交鋒的哲思──
《魚的來歷》詩會

時間 Time2017/6/25 (Sunday) 4:00pm-5:00pm
地點 Venue:油麻地 Kubrick電影中心一樓講廳
主持 Moderator: Florence Ng
詩人 Poet陳立諾

等了一百年,我終於變成
一條黑吻藍道鰈,游向右岸
可是尋你不遇,除了風
除了滿地花瓣隨風滾動 (〈魚的來歷1:錯誤〉)

水不留腳印,當魚游過,存留的是來時之路的記憶與未抵達之地的憧憬

詩人藉著質樸的文字,浪漫的想像,處身東西文學的交匯中,思考當代時間選擇、提出問題

人問:寫詩何為?寫詩就是表達一種渴望,渴望以詩意的方式棲居在土地之上。

詩歌喚醒我們深睡蒙垢的心靈 ,帶我們出離世界的黑夜,在優美的語言中與存在相遇。

或者,我們該如荷爾德林一樣問一問: 如果生活是十足的勞碌,人可否抬起頭,仰天而問:我甘願這樣?



詩集《魚的來歷》:
作者陳立諾畢業於中大新亞書院中文系,乃資深媒體人文字工作者。《魚的來歷》共收52首詩,數首入選香港年度詩選。詩集分三輯, 第一與第二輯訴說人與自己、人與世界的關係,「這部分作品,卸下巨大重量,撲面而來的是生活上的幽微細物,與隨性、暗自的幽默,以生活的靈光哲思拭去俗塵。」(《明周》);第三輯訴說人與他人的關係。
