DESCRIPTION

Tema-tema tentang kematian dan pelayaran ke negeri abadi banyak terakam dalam puisi Melayu moden dan tradisional. Kematian adalah sebahagian daripada kehidupan dan proses penerimaan hakikat ini melalui penulisan kreatif meninggalkan kesan yang mendalam. Kesedihan, rasa terkilan, kekesalan, kepasrahaan dan keredaan adalah contoh-contoh proses menghadapi kematian yang diluahkan dalam puisi Melayu. Panel akan mengamati dan membincangkan puisi-puisi bertemakan kematian dan pengertian tentang makna kematian melalui puisi.

Themes about death and journeys into immortal states are common in both modern and traditional Malay poetry. The process of accepting death through creative writing can leave a profound impact. Grief, regret, surrender, and forgiveness are part of the processes of dealing with death. This discussion analyses and appraises poems about death, and ruminates on the meaning of death through poetry.

This session is in Malay and is co-presented with Unggun Creative.
