      parsetreeforestfire by Hamid Roslan (with Alfian Sa'at)

      parsetreeforestfire is a bilingual book of poetry in which poems in Singlish occupy one side of the book, and poems in English on the other. Conventionally such a book functions as a way for a person to learn a new language, but it remains to be seen if translation has successfully occurred, or if the book even intends to teach any reader how to speak either language. Instead, if poetry is intense attention to language, then this book can be considered to be the product of such scrutiny on the languages this book is written in. parsetreeforestfire is Hamid’s debut collection of poetry. There will be a reading followed by a conversation between Hamid and Alfian Sa’at. Tickets are free, but booking is essential. To request a sign language interpreter or if you have other access needs, please contact us. We would love to have you with us!
