    講者: 淮遠
    主持: 樊善標教授
    日期: 2014年1月17日(星期五)
    時間: 3:30pm-5:00pm

    淮遠: 香港散文家、詩人,《素葉文學》同人,以奇特的黑色風格為本地的文學內行人極力推崇,著有散文集《鸚鵡韆鞦》、《懶鬼出門》、《賭城買糖》、《水鎗扒手》、《蝠女闖關》,詩集《跳虱》。近年更在個人臉書和微博發表作品。

    淮遠〈詞語解釋〉:
    我們站在港口那兒,看著一大幫水手和乘客在一艘豪華輪的甲板上,不知為甚麼吵得面紅耳熱,看來沒完沒了。她說,正當他們表露出一點妥協與和解的態度時,我再也按捺不住,突然跑過棧橋,衝上甲板,破壞了和平的氣氛,沒多久那裏的驢頭就混戰起來了。阿豆來不及阻止,又不想看著我們打架,只好自個兒回家,第二天早上在報端讀到一段新聞:「青年作家懷遠(連名字都搞錯了)毆鬥身亡。」我覺得整件事算不上甚麼噩夢,倒是其中一些東西足以構成一個完整的噩夢,那就是「青年作家」這個詞語。

    Conducted in Cantonese.

    We tell stories, and we create lies—intentionally or unintentionally—like in Rashomon, characters appear and use stories to bury the truth. Then, aren't telling stories sinful? The more fascinating the story, the more sinful it is.
