A collection occasioned by the Ministry of Education’s desire to include the study of Singapore poetry for the A-levels. By Singapore poems, we refer not only to the ensemble of established and emerging Singapore poets. Lines Spark Code gathers their poems into a movement to ground the study of English poetry on Singapore soil. This is a project that will bring teachers and students into face-to-face dialogue with the very poets whose lines will spark code-making in brilliant Singaporean essays yet to be written. The book features a specially designed jacket that can be disposed, leaving behind a book cover to be personalised by the reader. The right to teach and interpret poetry will transfer through these lines into our hands.
