Previous text?[edit]

Cyril Wong is the author of four books of poetry: squatting quietly, the end of his orbit, below: absence and unmarked treasure. He won the Young Artist Award for Literature in Singapore and was thrice-nominated for the Pushcart Prize in the USA. His poems have appeared in more international journals than any other poet in Singapore. They have also been adapted to dance, drama, music and film in projects that have been presented in Australia, Hong Kong, Germany and France. He is also a classically-trained countertenor who refrains from singing classical or baroque repertoire.

Very long section on his poetry[edit]

Not too sure on the format for poets, but isn't this section a bit too long and the tone a bit strange? It's longer than the literary style section on Robert Burns' article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by NoCringe (talkcontribs) 15:33, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
