The Iron Man by Ted Hughes Faber & Faber

How's this for heavy metal? The late Ted Hughes' wondrous prose-poem for children begins with the titular Iron Man standing on the brink of a cliff: 'How far had he walked? Nobody knows. Where had he come from? Nobody knows. How was he made? Nobody knows.'

And another thing

THERE ARE MANY reasons to see Xiaolu Guo at the 2007 Man Hong Kong International Literary Festival, not least because the poet, novelist and filmmaker has produced one of the most distinctive and memorable novels of the year so far.

Poems tell darkest secrets

You speak English and Cantonese and probably some Mandarin, but which language do you dream in? Which language do you choose to write in? These questions introduce us to confessional poetry, the subject of this week's Poetry On The Air , which can be heard on RTHK's Radio 4 at 10.05 am today and repeated at 6.30 pm tomorrow.
