Abstract:
This is a collection of Dr Muhammad Ariff Bin Ahmad`s earliest poetry, as early as 1939, before the Japanese Occupation. It holds a very significant socio-political document of his early life and his romantic era. This is an unpublished manuscript recently found in his residence. It reflects the development of his poetry-writing style and more importantly, his inner thoughts and feelings on humanity, love and friendship. Dr Muhammad Ariff Bin Ahmad claimed that this manuscript depicted his early activism in the literary arena. This manuscript reflects the changing trends of early poetry writing in Malaya.
