Product description

This volume, which brings together ten of Kuo Pao Kun's plays, provides a highly sensitive, critically inflected and sometimes "seismographic" account of the clashes between tow distinct worlds - that of the English-educated Singaporean and his Chinese-educated counterpart. Although no perceptible violence arises from these clashes, there is almost always the daily abrasions of the soul. With an unflinching eye, Kuo Pao Kun - the marginal person between these two worlds - plumbs the soul for the conscience and consciousness of Singaporeans, revealing as he does the artist as the true ethicist. With reviews of the plays by leading Asian drama critics, this volume gives new insights into one of Singapore's most prominent playwrights.
