Eddie Tay

Eddie Tay is a Singapore poet with a stronger Chinese influence than most.  His first book, Remnants, featured renditions of mythic and colonial Malayan history, and improvisations of Li Po, Li Ho and Tu Fu.   Wong Phui Nam in The Straits Times called the book “a distinctive first volume” with “a greater specific gravity than is usual in recent Singaporean poetry”.   A Lover’s Soliloquy continues Tay’s interest in Tang Dynasty verse, with ‘Versions’ of the cryptic and erotic poet, Li Shang-yin.  Eddie Tay lives in Singapore and Hong Kong.
