詩人 PoetSandra Simonds
語言Language: English

This talk will focus on the craft of translation stemming from Sandra’s experiences translating Baudelaire from French to English. The talk suggests that sometimes radical and unorthodox translations, paradoxically, can create more authentic and exciting insights into the original poems.

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. In 2013, she won a Readers’ Choice Award for her sonnet “Red Wand,” which was published on Poets.org, the Academy of American Poets website. She lives in Tallahassee, Florida and is an Associate professor of English and Humanities at Thomas University in Thomasville, Georgia.

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. In 2015, her English drama Breathe Me was adapted into a physical theater, shown in public. In 2017, she published her first bilingual book of poems, Hui. 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.

詩人 Poet陳立諾

除了滿地花瓣隨風滾動 (〈魚的來歷1:錯誤〉)




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?

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。
