Abstract: This paper discusses selected poems by three generations of Malay writers
in Singapore from the first generation poets who received their vernicular
education during British colonial period, before Malayan Independence in
1957; to second generation writers who received Malay education when
Singapore was part of Malaysia, 1957-1965 who established their poems
in 1970s; and the third generation writers who received bilingual education
who began to make impacts when Singapore become a Republic in 1980s.
These iconic poems embody the easthetic as well as the cultural and political
values of Malay society. It is an early attempt to define and search for canon
of Singapore Malay poetry.
