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. Sadly most of that celebration is ignored in his homeland where his passionate pursuit of human rights in his poems and as a lawyer finds little favour with the authorities. 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.
