About this book
Launching at a Cultural Olympiad event at the Southbank Centre, London, in June 2012. An anthology of Burmese poetry.
The poems include global references from a culture in which foreign books and the internet are regarded with suspicion and where censorship is an industry. The poets have been ingenious in their use of metaphor to escape surveillance and censorship, writing poet-modern, avant-garde, performance and online poetries.
