(1972-)BURMA 緬甸

Ko Ko Thett (1972–) is a poet by choice and a Burman by chance. He currently lives in Vienna and writes in both Burmese and English. The poems in his first English-language collection, The Burden of Being Burmese (2015), range from “faddish sugar crystals”, written in Burmese for his illegal campus chapbook at the Yangon Institute of Technology in 1996, to his most recent work “anxiety attack,” constructed at the University of Leuven in 2014. Apart from his own work as a writer and translator, he is co-editor of the seminal volume Bones Will Crow: 15 Contemporary Burmese Poets (2012, Northern Illinois University Press/Arc Publications).
