The introductory material proceeds to analyze the general workings of music in each particular b...(Read More)

Development of Modern Indonesian Poetry
Development of Modern Indonesian Poetry (June 1967)
Burton Raffel - Editor/translator

Indonesian poetry, like the country and also the language, is basically a product of this century.

Yet Indonesia has already produced a highly individua...(Read More)
