Ikram Jamil’s poetry is filled with references to geography, history, and
classic Malay literature. With their Malay flavor and diction, his poems convey
a tension between the past and present, between the colloquial and the
literary, and between regionalism and nationalism. The poet bequeaths the
wealth of the Malay language.
