Le rire de la Terre (The laugh of the Earth)

Anthlogie de nouvelles birmanes (Anthology of short stories from Myanmar)

Translator

Denise Bernot

The seven short stories in this collection, written throughout the 1950s, are a testament to the extraordinary literary explosion which followed Burmese independence in 1948. This upsurge only appears sudden : in reality, it corresponds to a gradual awakening that had been quietly simmering for thirty or forty years. This new literature became the voice of the modern era, first through translations and adaptations of foreign literature and finally in original works.
Through the choice of texts, the vivacity of the translation, and the introduction and commentaries, Denise Bernot allows us to experience the unique flavor of these sensitive and original tales.
