International Poetry Nights in Hong Kong 2015, "Poetry and Conflict," explores the multi-layered relationships between poetry and war. Acclaimed poets from war-troubled countries past and present engage "war" as a topic in their works, exchanging views and exploring the complex ways in which poetry has been able to play a role in the most violent events in human history. In doing so, they encourage the writers and readers of war-free Hong Kong to reflect upon the local milieu in a global framework.
