A luxury we cannot afford : an anthology of Singapore poetry
A luxury we cannot afford : an anthology of Singapore poetry. Chia, Christine and Ip, Joshua (Eds.). Singapore : Math Paper Press, 2014. 127 p. Notes: Foreword by Gwee Li Sui. Abstract: 'Singapore is a country of many invented, transplanted, or self-made myths and fables, but one looms above them all. 1969 marks the famous declaration of the myth; "Poetry is a luxury we cannot afford." As our island nation approaches its 50th anniversary wielding extraordinary wealth and prosperity, it is timely to review the narrative that has shepherded us through the past half century. Indeed it seems only poetic justice to examine this polarising mythos through the ballyhooed medium of poetry...'
