Suddenly the Night is an collection of poetry by Sapardi Djoko Damono, one of Indonesia’s preeminent poets. As is stated in the introduction to the book, “More than any other contemprary Indonesian poet, Sapardi realizes that poetry is more than convention and that convention is not necessarily a requisite for poetry. Through the language of his poetry and its meaning, sound, and rhythm Sapardi proves himself capable of depicting a highly imaginative awareness of experience.
