Anxiety Myths

 In a writing career spanning more than thirty years, Afrizal Malna has published several major collections of poetry and has seen his poems translated into several languages. Afrizal is concerned with a questioning of language and a bodily engagement with public and private space. It is through the appearance of everyday objects that his poems emerge as a repository of the cultural meanings of space and things in Indonesia’s everyday modernity. His poems maintain a fine balance between consistency of style and variation in theme. These are poems that trace the quickly changing urban trajectory of present day Indonesia.
