German Title: Von Batavia bis Jakarta in Gedichten
Indonesian Title: Dari Batavia ke Jakarta dalam Sajak dan puisi lainnya
Zeffry Alkatiri’s poetry collection is a romp through history in verse. These poems are flashes of past events that are unrolled to form a historical mosaic of Indonesia’s capital city. Starting with the Dutch turning Jakatra into Batavia, the poems paint a unique picture of the development Jakarta has undergone to date.
