Product Description

The Ethos Anthology of Urban Poetry

There is no other city quite like Singapore, and yet, no other city which these voices might call their own. No Other City: The Ethos Anthology of Urban Poetry brings together a rich spectrum of poetic voices and visions at work in Singapore today, from published poets such as Boey Kim Cheng, Lee Tzu Pheng and Arthur Yap and to new poets such as Alfian Sa’at, Ng Yi-sheng and Teng Qian Xi. All have one thing in common: they have known the city for most of their lives, and their sense of identity is deeply intertwined with the urban and cosmopolitan landscape of the modern Asia metropolis.

This anthology attempts to capture the dynamic interplay between people and places caught in the throes of a new urban reality, wrought within one generation of independence.
