About the event

Poetry and Protest

The most important thing about Liu Hongbin is not that four of his poems were posted around Tiananmen Square in 1989 but that "he is a poet of prime and original force" and this is amply demonstrated in his new collection A Day Within Days. Liu Hongbin will appear with his translator, Peter Porter, winner of the Whitbread Poetry Prize and one of the most distinguished poets at work in Britain today.
