This pocket-sized paperback is one of the twenty-two titles published for 2015 Hong Kong International Poetry Nights. The theme of IPHHK2015 is “Poetry and Conflict”. 21 international poets from 18 different places are invited to participate in recitations, symposia and sharing sessions of the Poetry Nights. A recitation focusing on 10 local Hong Kong poets, “Hong Kong Cantonese Poetry Night” is included. This collection seeks to make accessible the best of contemporary international poetry with outstanding translations.

Étienne Lalonde, originally from Quebec, Canada, released his first two poetry collections, Je cannibale and C’est encore la guerre, in 1999, at the age of twenty. C’est encore la guerre was a finalist for the Estuaire Terrasses Saint-Sulpice Prize for Poetry and also received a special mention for the Jacqueline Dery- Mochon Prize for Poetry. Histoires naturelles, published in 2010, was awarded the 2011 Felix-Leclerc Prize for Poetry. In 2012, Lalonde published Chemins mal éclairés and, in 2013, Vivier, Claude, finalist for both the Émile-Nelligan and the Montreal Poetry Festival Prizes for Poetry.
