The System of Classical Malay Literature
V. I. Braginsky
In this work Braginsky takes a novel approach, i.e. determining coherent themes in Malay literature from the 16th to 19th centuries. The overarching theme, that he proposes, is the Islamisation of the Malay world. That is backed up by literature consistently promoting the idea of beauty (indah) as been of divine origin and essential to human harmony. Very Good Paperback. First Edition. 131 pages.
