Mae Yway(Burma, 1991)
As Mae Yway says herself and also demonstrates in her writing, her poetry is congruent with her life. Yet this does not mean that the pointed and direct observations and statements which characterise her work are committed to paper with unselective spontaneity. Her poetry is tightly composed; the laconic tone and the seemingly impulsive sequences of sentences are the result of a clear perception of how language works. The task given to the reader is to choose her own interpretation and put it to the test. In all this, Yway's poetry is also an individual reflection on the life of a young woman in Myanmar.
