Like Death Approaching & Other Poems

Acep Zamzam Noor was born in Tasikmalaya, West Java, and studied art at university. He is a faithful bearer of what is known as “silent songs” (nyanyi sunyi), whose language is especially distinct from the bureaucratized language of the mass media but also markedly different from poets whose poems are filled with socio-political diatribe.
