Compendium of Hong Kong literature
Using the idea and form of “literary compendium”, this project aims to systematically present Hong Kong literature by publishing Compendium of Hong Kong Literature, an academic anthology which collects Hong Kong literary works of different periods in a well-organized way and explain their significance with introductory essays. The first phase of the work has been duly completed. The research data collection and other preparation work started in August 2010. The twelve volumes came out during the years 2014-2016.
The editorial committee is made up of experts of Hong Kong literature. The consultant board includes a number of internationally renowned scholars. Editors are all academics well-versed in the field of literature and/or culture.
