Burma has a long and difficult history. For writers, it is a place where foreign books and the Internet are regarded with suspicion, a place where censorship has been an industry. However, there have been recent glimmers of hope. Two of the country’s most esteemed poets, Zeyar Lynn and Khin Aung Aye, read from their work and discuss the country’s budding literary scene with the editor of Bones Will Crow, the first anthology of contemporary Burmese poetry to be published in the West.
