Poetry as Social Commentary or Fleeting Memory
This poetry recital and forum will feature two veteran writers whose influence on the Malay literary scene has been brought to the fore by a number of recent publications and literary forums. What are some of their interests and observations, and what can they do (or undo) for the Malay literary scene in Singapore? While social commitment is often demanded from writers, do veteran writers themselves fulfill such expectations? Are such questions even relevant today?
Featuring Eunos Asah and Maarof Salleh
This session will be held in Malay.
