    A superb, and superbly clever, anthology of poetry from Singapore, all in response to the statement that poetry is a luxury we cannot afford as made by Singapore s founding father back in the 1960s The poems themselves range widely in style and approach, and the anthology groups them into sets roughly around the city, the life of that nameless, though fully known, founding father, and the statement poetry is a luxury we cannot afford itself The collection is necessarily uneven in content, with s [...]

    I stumbled across this book by accident in a little shop in Joo Chiat the other day What a find It is an anthology of poems published last year, only months before the death of Lee Kuan Yew, reflecting on the nature and complexity of the man who called poetry a luxury Singapore could not afford A fascinating honest daring moving creative mixture of respect and critique directed toward the man and his legacy It marks a moment in history and is the sort of anthology you can pick up and dip into ma [...]

    One book with varying views that offer different perspectives that truly got to me both the use of the language of the poets contributing to this anthology, and also what each of these poems meant.Kudos to The Man who inspired these wonderful works.

    A collection of poems in honour of Singapore s founding father who once famously said that poetry was a luxury we cannot afford in building our new nation.How times have changed with poetry books being published each and every year now, mostly by local publisher Math Paper Press, which has put this beautiful volume together.All on Lee Kuan Yew Poets recount historical events go into his mind tell of his love of his wife, his country his pain his regrets We can only speculate.So many beautiful pi [...]

    An impressive anthology of poetry about The Man, that displays the vast gamut of Singaporean literary voices in plain sight, showing over and over how poetry is, in the words of Norashiqin Toh, not luxurious It is simply necessary Review 1 16 05 17.

    Curiosity level Beautiful, honest, and enchanting I know What you meant to say is we cannot afford poetry as a luxury, for poetry is not luxurious It is simply necessary p.33In this anthology of poems, 56 of our country s best poets dedicate poems to The Man He had raised a country from the ashes to beauty but there were things that even great men like him can t never get away with saying One was his in famous maxim Poetry is a luxury we cannot afford.Spanning 65 poems, these poet citizens lovin [...]

    One of the most coherent anthologies out there Probably all thanks to one man

    Perspectives are essential in life, and I had the opportunity to read this after The Man has passed on This gave me a wonderful chance to read the anthology in retrospect, rather than the original intention, being published in 2014 There is a whole plethora of ideas, some placed in uncanny juxtapositions, others in intriguing methods, yet perhaps these unplanned contradictions hint at a complicated portrait of The Man I thoroughly enjoyed this anthology, of which I can quote the ending lines of [...]

    I now appreciate local literature It s something to be able to understand the writers and their lingo It s something to understand things because you re Singaporean, it makes it a lot relatable and a lot raw I feel connected somehow There are really good poems in this collection, such as Cut It s one of my personal favourites I feel a lot optimistic about the local literature scene after reading this collection Maybe we re onto something here.
