Leung Ping?kwan is one of Hong Kong’s most acclaimed poets. His poems display a unique blend of the literary and the down?to?earth, the modern and the traditional, the serious and the humorous, the local and the universal. He wrote, ‘I want to write a kind of modern poetry that does not have to turn away from the world we live in, that rethinks the relationship between language and objects...’ This collection has been carefully curated, and is arranged under ten thematic sections: Lotus Leaves, Hong Kong, Macao, Foodscape, After the Book of Songs, Strange Tales: After Pu Songling, Clothink, Museum Pieces, Places and Friends, Bitter?Melon and Others. These translated poems, and the delight they bring, are a celebration of the continuing legacy of a remarkable Hong Kong poet.
