Wajah: The third edition of the Biographies of Writers is based on the book entitled Wajah (first printing, second edition 1988), which has undergone several amendments, additions and adjustments, and covers selected writers up to the 1970s. The 139 writers covered in this book have mostly demonstrated a significant impact and influence on the growth and development of modern Malay literature in the form of either short stories, poetry, drama, critical essays or even translation. Clearly, the contributions of these writers have not only enriched the literary heritage but also improved the quality of their art. This has been accomplished through their activities, experience, education, creativity and sensitivity.."
