Textures: Poetry as Social Commentary or Fleeting Memory

Featuring Maarof Salleh and Eunos Asah

This poetry recital and forum will feature two veteran writers whose mark on the Malay literary scene has been revived by a recent number of publications and literary forums. What are some of the interests and observations of these veteran writers, and what can they do (or undo) with regard to the Malay literary scene in Singapore? While social commitment is often demanded amongst writers, do veteran writers themselves fulfil such expectations? Are such questions even relevant today?

This session will be held in Malay.

This programme is part of Textures – a weekend with words.

Textures celebrates the power and beauty of words. It invites audiences to experience and appreciate how words give us the ability to express ourselves as well as give meaning to our lives and the world. With its profound ability to connect and unite, words breathe life into the vast breadth of human thought and feeling, whether spoken or written.

In this weekend of words, we also celebrate Singapore literature and the people who have contributed to it. From mastering the craft to those building a community of writers and readers, they are all part of weaving and strengthening the fabric of our literary landscape.
