Loud Poems For a Very Obliging Audience

Loud Poems For a Very Obliging Audience

This book is a compilation of some of Ng Yi-Sheng's best spoken word pieces — songs, diatribes and phantasmagorias — created for assorted poetry slams, readings and theatrical events between the years 1999 and 2016. Dealing with issues of politics, history, cultural identity and queer sexuality, these works show the writer at his most fearless, opinionated and dramatic — a complement to the subtler but similarly imaginative poems of his first collection of poetry, last boy.
