Abstract

Malay poetry has been identified as one of the essential elements in Malay traditional life, art, design, and aesthetic references. The Malay poetry element has its philosophy and purpose of enhancing Malay landscape designs as well as art character values. This review paper aims to interpret the link between the Malay cultural landscape with the compositions of Malay poetry. This review paper was conducted using the content analysis method. The nature, function, and similarity of Malay customs are encapsulated within Malay poetry, and these features are also present in the Malay cultural landscape which are key elements in the current research. Furthermore, this review paper seeks to acquire knowledge of the Malay cultural landscape that is woven in Malay poetry and the Malay world life. The identification of the features of the Malay cultural landscape may assist environmental researchers in Malaysia as it may act as a reference to assist in the design of an authentic Malay cultural landscape that encapsulates the original roots of the Malay culture.
