SingLit 101 (Season 3)


2016 sees the return of Gwee Li Sui’s Sing Lit 101: How to Read a Singaporean Poem! In this third season, with six brand new two-hour lectures, the well-loved poet and literary critic takes his study of Singaporean English poetry from the 1980s into the blazing 1990s. Turn back the clock to a time when the life of verse itself had reached a standstill and observe how poets moved on from the crisis through an artistic revolution whose effects can still be felt today.


Six specially chosen poems will be dissected for a range of spellbinding and often surprising meaning. Get clarifications of the seldom-discussed movements within Singaporean verse.


This is a perfect starter for the reader who wants to dip his/her toes into Singapore literature and poetry. Gwee’s talks are accessible, passionate, and always insightful.


Regardless of age or background, be charmed by Gwee’s textual readings and find yourself drawn to the continuing relevance of verse.
