When the Barbarians Arrive

Pang, Alvin, Kinsella, John
Format: Paperback
Published: June 26, 2012
ISBN: 9781906570989
80 pages


This is a selected works from Alvin Pang’s previous five collections. Throughout the selection Pang writes about meditation to unsentimental love poems to writing that is satirical. Wry and shrewd, the poems promote intelligence and sensitivity.

They mock, celebrate and unsettle, are generous and beautiful, full of paradoxes, logic and illogicalica, and are at once recognizably national and international in reach, offering a fresh edgy energy to the wave of urban poetry emerging from Singapore.
