This edition of the Classical Malay prose work, the
Hikajat Andakén Penurat includes an English translation and an Introduction explaining the place of the work in Malay literature. The
Hikajat Andakén Penurat tells the story of the prince Raden Andakén Penurat and his beloved, Kèn Tambuhan. It is closely related to the
Shair Kèn Tambuhan, a poem that has appeared in several editions. The story is relatively short and well written; it is representative of its genre. The book is especially intended for readers who have little or no knowledge of Malay.
