Poetry is a thing of beauty because of its language, beauty of form, beauty of thoughts, and beauty of emotions. Poetry reveals to us the loveliness of nature, brings back the freshness of youthful feelings, receives the relish of simple pleasure, refines youthful love, strengthens our interest in human nature, by vivid delineations of its tenderize and softest feelings, and through the brightness of its prophetic visions, helps faith to lay hold on the future life. Poetry is quite different from prose. It can be said that prose is “words in their best order”, and poetry is “the best words in their best order.” It is obvious that poetry is a more powerful form of expression than prose. Poetry feeds and waters the desires and passions instead of drying them up.

‘Where are you from?’ is a question you can’t avoid as a traveller, migrant or foreigner. But what if you live in a state of which you don’t feel you belong to its nation? What if your national identity is not an important identity marker at all? As a result of globalization, political and cultural boundaries often don’t coincide anymore. This makes it very hard to define to what national culture one belongs, which is exactly the case for Hong Kongers. After having been colonized by Great Britain for over a century, Hong Kong was reunited with/returned to China in 1997. During colonial rule Hong Kongers managed to construct a very own and unique Hong Kong culture, unlike adopting a British identity or holding on to Chinese culture. Therefore nationalism is a rather confusing topic to most Hong Kongers nowadays. "On the road towards feelings of belonging" is the result of anthropological research in Hong Kong. It helps us understand Hong Kong culture, in relation to Chineseness and Chinese culture, and ultimately questions the need for a national identity and its accompanying loyalty to a nation.
