Über diesen Titel


An intriguing snapshot of Rangoon's (Yangon's) current literary scene, Ellen Wiles's potpourri includes statements by fiction writers and poets about their careers and work, as well as samples of that work. A welcome addition to our knowledge of a little-recognized but newly vibrant literary field. -- Ward Keeler, University of Texas at Austin Saffron Shadows and Salvaged Scripts is an engrossing, revelatory, and humane study of Burma through the eyes, minds, words, and hearts of its own writers. A country and a history which is so often mediated through commentary from the outside is brought to life from the inside out. Ellen Wiles's book is a feat of generosity, intelligent insight, and, above all, a love of the written word and a faith in that word to convey truth, beauty, and defiance. Saffron Shadows and Salvaged Scripts demands to be read not just by those who love Burma but by anyone who values the power of literature. -- Bidisha, writer and BBC broadcaster A fascinating exploration of censorship as experienced by nine writers of Myanmar over three generations. Ellen Wiles is to be commended for her deft account of the political and historical backdrop, but most of all for the grace with which she makes room for these authors to reflect on the marks left by censorship in their own words and works. -- Maureen Freely, president, English PEN This excellent book is the first one to tell the story of censorship under military rule in Myanmar through the words of its writers and to explore what has changed since our transition began. I am happy that it includes new translations, since not much of our contemporary literature has been translated well into English, and we want to start sharing it with the rest of the world. -- Zarganar, comedian, actor, and director A very welcome volume... It offers a fascinating slice of a variety of author-lives and literary experiences... Saffron Shadows and Salvaged Scripts neatly captures Burma right at the cusp of what might be a very dramatic change, and it will continue to be of interest both as an historical document(ation) and as a point of comparison for what is to come. -- M.A. Orthofer The Complete Review An engrossing and eye-opening book. -- Joe Treasure The Daily Star Wiles's readable account reveals the appalling depths of persecution writers faced... [A] refreshing, insightful book. Choice Ellen Wiles discusses the secret literary culture that developed under this regime and more recent developments by interviewing prominent writers and providing translations of their intriguing works for English speakers to discover, while also providing important context and a lasting sense of hope for the future of creativity in the country. World Literature Today Fascinating and informative... Saffron Shadows and Salvaged Scripts is a volume well worth reading if you are interested in Myanmar's literature in the context of the changing politics of the country in recent years. -- Robert H. Taylor Asian Studies Review Saffron Shadows and Salvaged Scripts, brilliantly captures the complicated history of literary life under successive military regimes and the forms it currently takes in the context of rapid change. -- Ken MacLean South Asian History and Culture
