He was soon able to live in the Netherlands as part of a cultural exchange program. In the years that followed, he took an interest in several other cultural exchanges, including trips to the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China , as well as translations of Russian writers Maxim Gorky and Leo Tolstoy. In Indonesia, Pramoedya built up a reputation as a literary and social critic, joining the left-wing writers' group Lekra and writing in various newspapers and literary journals.

His writing style became more politically charged, as evidenced in his story Korupsi Corruption , a critical fiction of a civil servant who falls into the trap of corruption.

This created friction between him and the government of Sukarno. From the late s, Pramoedya began teaching literary history at the left-wing Universitas Res Publica. As he prepared material, he began to realise that the study of Indonesian language and literature had been distorted by the Dutch colonial authorities. He sought out materials that had been ignored by colonial educational institutions, and which had continued to be ignored after independence.

Having spent time in China, he became greatly sympathetic to the Indonesian Chinese over the persecutions they faced in postcolonial Indonesia. Most notably, he published a series of letters addressed to an imaginary Chinese correspondent discussing the history of the Indonesian Chinese, called Hoakiau di Indonesia History of the Overseas Chinese in Indonesia. He criticized the government for being too Java-centric and insensitive to the needs and desires of the other regions and peoples of Indonesia.

As a result, he was arrested by the Indonesian military and jailed at Cipinang prison for nine months. Imprisonment under Suharto[ edit ] In an October coup the army took power after alleging that the assassination of several senior generals was masterminded by the Communist Party of Indonesia.

The transition to Suharto's New Order followed, and Pramoedya's position as the head of People's Cultural Organisation, a literary group with connections to the Indonesian Communist Party, caused him to be considered a communist and enemy of the "New Order" regime. During the violent anti-Communist purge , he was arrested, beaten, and imprisoned by Suharto's government and named a tapol "political prisoner".

His books were banned from circulation, and he was imprisoned without trial, first in Nusa Kambangan off the southern coast of Java, and then in the penal colony of Buru in the eastern islands of the Indonesian archipelago. He was banned from writing during his imprisonment on the island of Buru, but still managed to compose - orally - his best-known series of work to date, the Buru Quartet , a series of four historical fiction novels chronicling the development of Indonesian nationalism and based in part on his own experiences growing up.

The main character of the series, Minke, a Javanese minor royal, was based in part on an Indonesian journalist active in the nationalist movement, Tirto Adhi Surjo. The quartet includes strong female characters of Indonesian and Chinese ethnicity, and addresses the discriminations and indignities of living under colonial rule, and the struggle for personal and national political independence. Like much of Pramoedya's work it tells personal stories and focuses on individuals caught up in the tide of a nation's history.

Pramoedya had done research for the books before his imprisonment in the Buru prison camp. When he was arrested his library was burned and much of his collection and early writings were lost. On the prison colony island of Buru he was not permitted even to have a pencil.

House of Glass

Doubting that he would ever be able to write the novels down himself, he narrated them to his fellow prisoners. With the support of the other prisoners who took on extra labor to reduce his workload, Pramoedya was eventually able to write the novels down, and the published works derived their name "Buru Quartet" from the prison where he produced them.

They have been collected and published in English translated by Max Lane and Indonesian , as well as many other languages. Though the work is considered a classic by many outside of Indonesia, publication was banned in Indonesia, causing one of the most famous of Indonesia's literary works to be largely unavailable to the country's people whose history it addressed.

Copies were scanned by Indonesians abroad and distributed via the Internet to people inside the country. Pramoedya's works on colonial Indonesia recognised the importance of Islam as a vehicle for popular opposition to the Dutch, but his works are not overtly religious.Then, within each language there stand reality and expose the existing many things accordingto your point of are terms of address for each level of the potentials for transcending it.
