KUALA LUMPUR: Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah last night agreed to go to the 15th National Literary Award Ceremony.

At a ceremony held at a hotel here, the arrival of Al-Sultan Abdullah and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah at 8.45pm was welcomed by Senior Minister of Education Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin and his wife Datin Balkis Zakaria.

Also present were the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Language and Literature Council (DBP) and the Head of the 15th National Literary Award Panel Prof Datuk Seri Dr Awang Sariyan and DBP Director General Datuk Abang Sallehuddin Abg Shokeran.

Al-Sultan Abdullah and Tunku Azizah then agreed to receive the 15th National Literary Award Recipient Datuk Rahman Shaari’s Speech which was read by Radzi, who is also the Chairman of the Panel for the award.

After the meeting, His Majesty bestowed the 15th National Literary Award on Rahman before receiving a speech from the National Literary.

Meanwhile, Rahman in his prayer speech said the subject of Malay Literature should continue to be streamlined, that is by applying the “focused method” and “experiencing method” which has been widely known since the 1980s.

He said the selection of works to be used as school texts should also be done carefully and carefully.

“If these two aspects are successfully developed, we have no reason to see literature as a subject that is under science or any subject and trend,” he said, who produced a number of poetry books in addition to producing novels, short stories and drama scripts.

On June 22, Rahman was announced as the recipient of the 15th National Literary Award, which carries the title of National Literary Artist.

Rahman’s selection is based on his contribution which utilized most of his life for the development of the country’s literature.

The National Literary Award has been given since 1981 to writers who write in Malay and have made outstanding contributions to the development of the country’s literature through high-quality works.
