A Tribute to Yasi: Watching Over Hong Kong
向也斯致意:守望香港
City, Art, Poems
城市 | 藝術 | 詩
 
也斯熱愛香港,他筆下的香港盛載滿滿的本土情懷與想像。也斯離開我們四年了,今天,這座城市、人、物還是依舊嗎?
 
也斯的離開讓我們再度聚首。今年三月,我們將在港大展開一趟結合思念與想像的旅程,以音樂、藝術、研討會、讀詩、印詩等方式,去參與、追溯、及回應也斯對這城市過去、現在與將來的解讀。
「但我們還是不要再過多的嘆息吧。」這是四方田犬彥在他與也斯合著《守望香港:香港──東京往復書簡》一書中,提及也斯未能於生前看到此書出版的感受。或許這句話,亦能加以延伸,作為處於當下這個小島正在經歷的躁動與焦慮中,你我所該抱持的心情。
 
守望香港。
 
本活動由書送快樂、香港大學通識教育部、香港大學文學院、香港大學比較文學系、香港大學現代語言及文化學院香港研究課程聯合主辦。 
 
Leung Ping Kwan (1949 – 2013), pen name Yasi, was one of Hong Kong’s best-known writers. He was a prolific poet, novelist, essayist, translator, researcher, teacher, scholar, as well as a literary, film, and cultural critic. He taught in the Departments of English and Comparative Literature at HKU for many years.
 
It has been four years since he passed away. Under the theme of “Watching Over Hong Kong”, the title of the epistolary book co-written by Yasi and Japanese author Inuhiko Yomota published after Yasi’s death, this event will pay tribute to Yasi with music, arts, seminar, and poetry, and decode this city’s past, present and future through Yasi’s work. 
 
The event is co-organised by Read-Cycling, the General Education Unit, the Faculty of Arts, the Department of Comparative Literature and the Hong Kong Studies Programme of the School of Modern Languages and Cultures.
