Borrowed Body & Other Poems

By Joko Pinurbo; Translated by Harry Aveling and Helga Blazy
The Lontar Foundation
Joko Pinurbo’s poetry is immediately recognizable for its simple language, accessibility, and the recurrent use of a number of specific but unusual motifs. His poems deal with a wide range of interpersonal relationships, with figures who engage in prosaic narratives that are deeply ironic, full of dark humor, and interwoven with nostalgia.
Joko Pinurbo (Author)
Joko Pinurbo, a graduate of the Sanata Dharma Teachers College in Yogyakarta, first came to literary attention in the 1980s. He is known for his lack of pretense—both in his life and his work—and has published nine books of poetry, many of them prize-winners. In 2014 he received the SEA-Write Award.
