A collection of poems to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the publication of the first collection of Malaysia's most celebrated poet in the English language.

Of his 23 collections of poems only three have been published in Malaysia. A glorious introduction to the variety of his verse. Despite Rajendra's human rights advocacy this collection shows him to be self-deprecating, witty, romantic and puzzled. 159 pages. Weight: 0.5kg. Post free within Malaysia
