By Jennifer Mackenzie

on the time of the development of Borobudur within the 9th century, Buddhism were proven in Java for numerous centuries. Mackenzie’s "Borobudur", a fantastic lengthy poem, tells the tale of its mythical architect, Gunavarman, and of Indonesia’s mystical monument with cultural figuring out, sensitivity and nice feeling. Like Gunavarman through the poem’s finish, Mackenzie turns into ‘a dot at the horizon’ leaving us stilled in silence.

"Like turning a perfectly textured and wonderfully glazed vessel round and round, the chronology of Jennifer Mackenzie's Borobudur, is improved whereas eluding linearity. Her legend of Gunavarman, Javanese Buddhism's nearly legendary priest-architect, reminds certainly one of Hesse's Siddhartha with the parallel fact she creates for the book's protagonists. Borobudur is a memorable invention, totally current because it succors either historical past and mind's eye. The poem's tropical atmospheres and correspondingly spiced language, the splendid element and layers of tale, girdle the poem because it, in its fabulous stead, encircles the monument which period nearly forgot." ~ Kris Hemensley
