On Foreign Shores

With the book's subtitle being "American Images in Indonesian Poetry," On Foreign Shores is a poetic record of travels by Indonesian poets through the United States. For the many Indonesian writers who have spent time in the United States, the country that is America is sometimes a jungle, sometimes a labyrinth of loneliness, but at other times a snow-swept plain, a misty morning sky or a fount of pleasure and love. The poets pain a gamut of images that, while often familiar, take on a new light as they are seen through foreign eyes.
