"Time had given Don Quixote gravitas: he no longer belonged to Cervantes; in fact, he, an inveterate reader and unredeemed impostor, belonged to no one and to everyone." -- from Ilan Stavans's "Parable"
To commemorate the 400th anniversary of the death of Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes, we asked contemporary poets to interpret the themes of Cervantes's classic Don Quixote for Hong Kong and East Asia. The result is a collection of poems by both award-winning and emerging poets from Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines and beyond illustrating how Don Quixote continues to inspire and illuminate across oceans and centuries.
Join us for the Launch at the 2016 Hong Kong Book Fair, 20 July, 6:30-8:00pm: Quixotica and the Man of La Mancha: Cervantes 400 Years Later.
