Di Serambi: On the Verandah, first published in 1995, brings together the work of twelve contemporary Indonesian poets. Over forty poems are presented in both Indonesian and English, together with notes on linguistic and cultural references, and a brief biography of each contributor. The poems have been selected to offer a range of chronological, thematic, and stylistic perspectives on Indonesian poetry. Iem Brown and Joan Davis travelled to Indonesia to interview the writers, providing the reader with a social context for the poetry. In their translations, they have kept faith with the oral tradition of Indonesian poetry, maintaining the rhythm and flow of the works, rather than presenting a purely literal interpretation. As a bilingual collection, this book serves those with general interest in Asian Studies as well as language students. Di Serambi: On the Verandah will prove invaluable to students and teachers of Indonesian language and culture.
