Best Burmese description literature

Her first book? If you are interested in Burma literature, you should begin with the classic of all times, which must be Orwell's Burmese Days. It' built on Orwell's experience in Burma from 1922 to 1927. It' about John Flory, a Burmese wood trader who is a little disenchanted and not much happens to him.

It' all about the English Club, with all the little things that make you goofy, and it's such a mean, prissy little place. Like the Scots and the English, the Burmese have these antagonisms that go back forever, and they look down on the Indians and call them'Dog Indians'.

She has a Burmese lover, but then this little Elizabeth comes to Burma to spend time with her uncles. Florence is very pro-Burmese and the Burmese, but Elizabeth is full of British prejudice and racialism and can't bear it. Burma is generally a very weird place because it was not like India, with an infra structure.

When you went there, there wasn't so much of that high level of community in Calcutta and the racetrack and so on. It was a great place, and Rangoon was equated with Calcutta, but certainly not inland like in this book, where it was like the Wild West - a border town.

But you know where you are at Burmese Day, because it is Orywell and he has never said a single evil thing in his Iife. It' simply wonderful: fun, ironical, a terribly tragic portrayal of colorful people. What is your next book? When Drake gets a call from someone at the War Department who says he's coming to visit him to go to Burma to pitch an Erard, which is the least common of pianos: it was only maybe 90, and Napoleon was sent one, and Beethoven had one.

And in 1886, to come to Burma? So, Drake goes out and on the way he has weird talks with folks on the ship about myth, and they go through Aden and over to Bombay, and he is blinded by it. He has never seen so many men or women, as you can probably guess.

You take the Calcutta railroad and across the Andamanensee to Rangoon, and then a railroad to Mandalay, where he is received by this lady, who says she will lead him, and she always carries a bouquet in her hairdry. My grandma apparently had a clean blossom every morning.

To make a long story brief, we are now in the Third Anglo-Burmese Wars, and there is this guy named Surgeon Major Dr. Anthony Carroll, who is stationed in the Shan States in Upper Burma - in the jungle. He has a peculiar affinity with the Burmese and has won over some of the Burmese aristocracy - warmlords - by citing them Shelley and performing the piano: it's like gaining heart and mind.

He asked for an Erard, and the War Department sent one out - like someone in Helmand Province asking for a Stradivarius - and now it has to be vocal. Edgar Drake comes along, and there are marvelous accounts of how he listens to the rains because he knows his way around the world.

There are nice portrayals of Burma with broaches as big as they are, and the qualities of the lights and sundowns and so on, but Mason can speak about the different noises of the rains of the monsoons, and how rains that fall on pastures sound different from those that fall on or touch the floor of an orchid, and it's just marvellous.

He really has everything on the Burmese myth. Myth and myth and magic and spirituality and incarnation are so important in Burma - just like in India - and every home has a'nat': the ghosts who take care of your housekeeping, and they have different lives. Leaving behind little pieces of bread and water, wishes and prays.

Has the writer spent much of the day in Burma? I never had a boring break in that book: It was something I used to love, and it has so much to do with Burma's atmospere. He understands the whole thing with the myth, I think, and folks put so much emphasis on little things.

It' actually a happy, shocking book, a little like a thriller. Burma is about 100 leagues from Rangoon, and the Burmese gulags' equivalents, with gangsters, convicts, and the most despised are the prisoners-in-law. This book is about this man, known as a singing bird, who was confused in the 1988 NLD election by Aung San Suu Kyi and sent to ad seg. in this horrific jail.

He' s meditating in his cells and not talking to anyone but the saurians and ants so that he's not going crazy. He goes showering every weekend and the showers are full of darkness and rat-filled to get out of, and it's really horrible, but it raises the curtain under the circumstances in Burmese jails.

No. But it's built on a million actual Burmese people now. It could even be that the Burmese humorist who was imprisoned about five years ago for talking wit. Before, when he was a college graduate, he worked as a waitress, and in this place he made a connection with John Casey, who was an British teacher visiting Burma.

Case proposed to come and go to university and got him a place at Caius College, Cambridge to learn English music. Though they let Pascal out of the land, he was not permitted to come back. Gorgeous writers about his upbringing in Burma and these beautiful accounts of his early years among long-necked Burmese wives, and then these terrible things that occurred to him and how he went into the woods with the Karen tribe and led a life as a partition.

Then he' s writing about his English lifestyle and it's amazing. I' m not sure if Pascal Koo Thwe is very lucky or fulfilling, because I think, if you are Burmesin and want to do something, you should somehow be there. The last book? The first part is about Burma's literary, social, cultural as well as civic lives, and it goes through Burma's long and prosaic story.

It' pretty hard because the story always goes on. She also wrote about things like "the ten obligations of a king", which are: liberalism, morals, self-sacrifice, openness, friendliness, thriftiness, harmlessness, non-violence, non-opposition against the will of the nation and so on - what's new?

Her whole way of living is so unconfrontational. You wouldn't think this book would be a laughing stock, but the most important thing is that it was her. It was a touristic destination in Burma before it was placed under home detention. She' d be coming out of her home on University Avenue giving one of her lectures.

In 1985 I drank with her and she was wonderful: she was determined that no one should come to Burma, that it would not help and that there should be sanction. It is the exact opposite of the point that you have to go to Burma and speak to the Burmese and see for yourself.

How much can you actually speak to the public under such a system? However, Aung San Suu Kyi is beautiful, and my mom, who was Burmese, always said she should go away from Burma and go around the globe gathering help for her cause.
