Event Details

In his sixth collection of poetry, two-time Singapore Literature Prize winner, Yong Shu Hoong, contemplates how a person is invariably bound to the land on which he first sets foot. Exploring the four fundamental elements of air, water, fire and earth, Right of the Soil navigates questions about belongingness and birthright.

Aside from reading new poems, Yong will be sharing about his creative meshing of heartfelt ruminations with world-building, and how the infamous 10 Courts of Hell in Haw Par Villa inspired an integral section in this latest addition to his oeuvre.
