Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The literature of Burma (or Myanmar) spans over a millennium. Burmese literature was historically influenced by Indian and Thai cultures, as seen in many works, such as the Ramayana. The Burmese language, unlike other Southeast Asian languages (e.g. Thai, Khmer), adopted words primarily from P li rather than from Sanskrit. In addition, Burmese literature has the tendency to reflect local folklore and culture.show more
