Abstract:

"Rumah is a collection of old Riau⁰́₃Malay rhymed sayings originally gathered and published by Tenas Effendy. Referred to in Malay literature as "Ungkapan," these eloquent stanzas depict the Malay house as a metaphor for the passage of life, the responsibilities of parenthood, the social observances of communal living, and the obligations of existing harmoniously with nature. Together, they form a complex work that vividly illustrates the values of customary law, etiquette, cultural protocols and religious tenets as cherished within a Malay home. The sayings themselves beautifully capture and radiate the warmth of a graceful Malay kampung house cast within the idyllic setting of a lush tropical oasis. Rumah has been elegantly translated by Raimy Che-Ross and richly illustrated by Ahmad Harun."--Dust jacket.
