Introduction:
Writers’ Possessions

香港作家的作品類型繁多,主題各異,如要更了解作家的生命和創作軌跡,除了從書籍和報刊之間感受動人和深刻的情與意,也能在手稿和個人物品之中,尋找作家與作品的連繫、作品與時代的關係,為閱讀與思考提供更多層次和角度。其中筆墨化成的手稿和書信,彌足珍貴,充滿作家的溫情和記憶,也包含不同時地作家的交往情誼,共同構成一段段美好的文字時光。至於個人物品如毛熊、文具、郵票簿、文學獎座、海報及風景畫等,不但呈現作家的興致情趣、生活面貌和人生閱歷,也能展現香港文壇豐富和獨特的人文風景。在現代科技發達的時代,生活已逐步為虛擬的事物佔據和取代,所以這些滿載回憶和歷史的藏品,都是非常珍貴和值得珍惜的。

Hong Kong’s literary writings span a plethora of genres and themes. Print publications contribute to a better understanding of writers’ lives, their creative trajectories and their mindsets. Manuscripts and personal possessions also open a window into the links between writers and their works, and between works and the eras in which they were created, thus offering readers different dimensions and angles for thought. Handwritten manuscripts and correspondences are particularly valuable as they are vessels of sentiment and memory, as well as testaments to friendships between writers across space and time, together forming fascinating snapshots of textual time. Other personal items such as plush toys, stationeries, stamp albums, literary prizes, posters, and landscape paintings not only express writers’ interests, lifestyles and experiences; they also depict the richness and uniqueness of Hong Kong’s literary landscape. In today’s world of technological advancements, real life is gradually being eclipsed or dominated by the virtual world, so these memory-laden historical items are even more precious and worthy of preserving.
