Kubrick Poetry •February • Home Away Elsewhere

時間 Time:2012/2/26 (Sunday) 5:00pm-6:00pm
地點 Venue: 油麻地 Kubrick(next to Broadway Cinemathèque, 3 Public Square St.)
主持 Moderators:Polly Ho, Adam Cheung, Florence Ng
詩人 Poet:Vaughan Rapatahana

Born Patea (ko Te Atiawa te iwi), Ph.D University of Auckland, Aotearoa-New Zealand. Lived and worked in several countries, including UAE, Republic of Nauru, Brunei Darussalam, PR China and currently spends his time between homes in Te Araroa, Pampanga, Hong Kong. Published extensively in a variety of publications worldwide – from Philosophy Now to Asian Cha - and author of several books and poetry teaching resources. Also Poetry Editor Maori and Indigenous Review Journal.

Vaughan Rapatahana’s poems are replete with references to his own Indigenous heritage in Aotearoa-New Zealand and his current exiled status as a resident also of both Hong Kong and Pampanga, Philippines. Indeed themes of alienation, marginalization, alternatives scream through his lines – apposite for a man with a Ph.D in existential literary criticism and the work of the author of The Outsider, Colin Wilson.

Rapatahana will read from his two 2011 poetry publications of Home Away Elsewhere (Proverse Hong Kong); china as kafka (Kilmog Press, Aotearoa-New Zealand) and his new HKDSE poetry & song teaching resource (Aristo Educational Press) will also be available for viewing

文學院要搬家, 許多港大的畢業生都捨不得。

今年香港大學比較文學系今年開辦了“現代詩”一課, 除了介紹理論外,亦鼓勵同學把堂上學到的知識實踐於創作。張美君博士(Dr Esther Cheung)收集了同學的優秀作品,希望和大眾分享作品和創作過程,於是造就是次讀書會。張美君博士帶來了一班寫現代詩的學生:林嘉慧、吳靜文、林三維、林凱敏、林俊宇和伍一龍同學。
