The sinking of Lampong poetry
about

The eruption of Mount Krakatau

 

Top of Form

Long before foreign researchers wrote about the eruption of Mount Krakatau (Krakatoa, Carcata) on 26, 27, and August 28, 1883, a native witness has written a very rare and interesting, three months after the eruption of  Krakatoa through Lampung Karang (Lampong sinking) poetry .

 

“Scientific studies and bibiliografi about Krakatoa almost missed include only indigenous written sources, which record the testimonies of the eruption of Krakatoa in 1883. Two years of research, I found the only native testimony in written form, “he said. Before the eruption on 26, 27, and August 28, 1883, the Krakatoa volcano has coughed since May 20, 1883. Krakatoa eruption caused pyroclastic as high as 70 km and 40-meter high tsunami that killed about 36,000 people.


Before the 1883 eruption, Mount Krakatoa had never exploded around the year 1680 / 1.

The eruption that led to the three islands adjacent to each other; Sertung Island, Little Rakata Island, and the island of Rakata. Suryadi explained, as long as it is to be reading about the eruption of Mount Krakatoa is a complete research report GJ Symons et al, The Eruption of Krakatoa and Subsequent Phenomena: Report of the Krakatoa Committee of the Royal Society (London, 1888).

While the indigenous written sources published in Singapore in printed form stones (litography) in 1883/1884. Kolofonnya recorded in 1301 AH (November 1883-October 1884).

 

The first edition is titled Poetry Lampung District Water and Rain ridden by Abu (42 pages). “A short time later came the second edition of this poem with the title This is the poem Lampung ridden Sea (42 pages). The second edition was also published in Singapore on 2 Safar 1302 H (21 November 1884), “he explained.
The third edition of the poem titled Lampung and Anyer and the Cape Coral Sea Rise (49 pages), published by Haji Said. This third edition also published in Singapore, bertarikh 27 Rabiulawal 1301 AH (January 3, 1886). In some ads, this third edition of the poem called Anyer Sunset District. “

The fourth edition of this poem, the last edition as far as I know, This is the poem entitled The Karam Lampung (36 pages). This fourth edition also published in Singapore, Safat bertarikh 10 1306 H (October 16, 1888), “said Suryadi, the dozens of research results have been published in various international journals.
According to Suryadi, the fourth edition of the text special poem written in Malay and Arabic wear-Malay (Jawi). From the comparison of the text which he did, there are significant variations between each edition. This indicates that kelisanan influence is still strong in the tradition of literacy that began to grow in the archipelago in the second half of the 19th century.
Suryadi who managed to identify the place where copies of all editions of Lampung Karam poem that still exists in the world until now to mention, Lampung poem written Karam Mohammed Saleh. He admitted writing the poem in Kampung Bangkahulu (then called Bencoolen Street) in Singapore. “Muhammad Saleh claimed was in Cape Coral when the eruption of Krakatoa occurred and witnessed the great natural disaster that with his own eyes. It is likely that the poet was a victim of the eruption of Krakatoa which went fled to Singapore, and brings scary memories of natural disasters mahadahsyat it, “he said.
 Lampung Karam or the sinking of Lampong poetry can be categorized as a poetic journalism, because the more strongly highlight the nuances of journalism. In Lampung Karam Poetry 38 pages in length and 374 verse, Mohammed Saleh dramatically illustrate the great disaster that followed the eruption of Mount Krakatoa in 1883. He told the destruction of villages and mass death caused by the eruption. Areas such as Earth, Kitambang, Gutters, Kupang, Lampasing, Umbulbatu, Benawang, Rhino, Limes, monkey, Mount Bases, Gunung Sari, Minanga, Tanjung, Kampung teba, Middle Village, Kuala, Rajabasa, Cape Coral, Island also Sebesi , Sebuku, and Peacock devastated by the tsunami, mud, and rain of ash and rock.
The author tells how in a heartbreaking situation and turmoil, people are still willing to help each other help each other. However, not a few who take the opportunity to enrich themselves by taking the property and other people’s money is overwritten disaster. Besides tracing the editions published poem Lampung Karam remaining in the world until now, the study also presents transliterations Suryadi (control characters) text of this poem in the Latin alphabet.

another info

The legendary annihilation in 1883 of the volcano-island of Krakatoa — the name has since become a by-word for a cataclysmic disaster — was followed by an immense tsunami that killed nearly 40,000 people. Beyond the purely physical horrors of an event which has only very recently become properly understood, the eruption changed the world in more ways than could possibly be imagined. Dust swirled round the world for years, causing temperatures to plummet and sunsets to turn vivid with lurid and unsettling displays of lght. The effects of the immense waves were felt as far away as France. Barometers in Bogota and Washington went haywire. Bodies were washed up in Zanzibar. The sound of island’s destruction was heard in Australia and India and on islands thousands of miles away.

 

The 1883 explosion on an uninhabited island in Indonesia was one of the most catastrophic in history. Before the eruption, this island in the Sunda Straits between Java and Sumatra islands was made up of three stratovolcanoes that had grown together.


In the summer of 1883, one of Krakatau’s three cones became active. Sailors reported seeing clouds of ash rising from the island. The eruptions reached a peak in August, culminating in a series of tremendous explosions. The most ear-shattering eruption was heard in Australia, more than 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) away.


Ash was sent 50 miles (80 kilometers) into the sky and blanketed an area of 300,000 square miles (800,000 square kilometers), plunging the area into darkness for two and a half days. The ash drifted around the globe, causing spectacular sunsets and halo effects around the moon and sun.

The explosions also sent as much as 5 cubic miles (21 cubic kilometers) of rock fragments into the air. The northern two-thirds of the island collapsed under the sea into the newly vacated magma chamber. Much of the remaining island sank into a caldera about 3.8 miles (6 kilometers) across.

The collapse set off an immense series of tsunamis, or giant sea waves, that traveled as far as Hawaii and South America. The largest wave loomed 120 feet (37 meters) high and destroyed 165 nearby settlements. All vegetation was stripped bare, structures were
demolished, and some 30,000 people were washed out to sea in Java and Sumatra.

Krakatau was quiet until the 1920s, when volcanic activity began again. Since then, eruptions have built a new cone, Anak Krakatau, or “child of Krakatau” in the center of the caldera created in 1883

Port Fuad (Arabic: بور فؤاد ‎; Būr Fu’ād) is a city in north-eastern Egypt under the jurisdiction of Port Said Governorate, located across the Suez Canal from Port Said. It forms the northwesternmost part of Sinai Peninsula and has a population of 560,000 (as of 2003). Port Fuad and Port Said together form a metropolitan area.

Port Fuad was established in 1926, principally to relieve overcrowding in Port Said, and was named after King Fuad I (also transliterated as Fuad), the first holder of the title King of Egypt in the modern era (having previously held the title Sultan of Egypt).

The city is located on a triangular island which is bounded by the Mediterranean on the north, the Suez Canal on the west, and the relatively new junction between the Suez Canal and the Mediterranean on the east. The Suez Canal Authority forms the main employment of the city, and its employees comprise most of the population. It has one general hospital.

After the war of 1967 Port Fuad was the only piece of Sinai held by the Egyptians. The Israelis tried to capture Port Fuad countless of times during the War of Attrition, but failed each time. During October War Port Fuad was secured and land was regained around it to ensure it would never be attacked or bombed again by the Israelis. The war ended with a strategic victory for Egypt, and in the Camp David Accord in 1978 Israel agreed to return Sinai to Egypt peacefully, and later the two countries signed a peace treaty. Today Port Fuad is a major Air Defense Position for Egypt.

THE HISTORY OF Egypt and  KING FUOAD  

Local dissatisfaction with Ismail and with European intrusion led to the formation of the first nationalist groupings in 1879, with Ahmad Urabi a prominent figure. In 1882 he became head of a nationalist-dominated ministry committed to democratic reforms including parliamentary control of the budget. Fearing a reduction of their control, the UK and France intervened militarily, bombarding Alexandria and crushing the Egyptian army at the battle of Tel el-Kebir.[31] They reinstalled Ismail’s son Tewfik as figurehead of a de facto British protectorate.[32]

Female nationalists demonstrating in Cairo, 1919

In 1914 the Protectorate was made official, and the title of the head of state, which had changed from pasha to khedive in 1867, was changed to sultan, to repudiate the vestigial suzerainty of the Ottoman sultan, who was backing the Central powers in World War I. Abbas II was deposed as khedive and replaced by his uncle, Hussein Kamel, as sultan.[33]

In 1906, the Dinshaway Incident prompted many neutral Egyptians to join the nationalist movement. After the First World War, Saad Zaghlul and the Wafd Party led the Egyptian nationalist movement to a majority at the local Legislative Assembly.

When the British exiled Zaghlul and his associates to Malta on 8 March 1919, the country arose in its first modern revolution. The revolt led the UK government to issue a unilateral declaration of Egypt’s independence on 22 February 1922.[34]

Kingdom

 

The new government drafted and implemented a constitution in 1923 based on a parliamentary system.

 Saad Zaghlul was popularly elected as Prime Minister of Egypt in 1924.

 In 1936 the Anglo-Egyptian Treaty was concluded. Continued instability due to remaining British influence and increasing political involvement by the king led to the dissolution of the parliament in a military coup d’état known as the 1952 Revolution. The Free Officers Movement forced King Farouk to abdicate in support of his son Fuad. British military presence in Egypt lasted until 1954.

Farouk I of Egypt (Arabic: فاروق الأول Fārūq al-Awwal) (11 February 1920 – 18 March 1965), was the tenth ruler from the Muhammad Ali Dynasty and the penultimate King of Egypt and Sudan, succeeding his father, Fuad I, in 1936.

His full title was “His Majesty Farouk I, by the grace of God, King of Egypt and Sudan, Sovereign of Nubia, of Kordofan, and of Darfur.” He was overthrown in the Egyptian Revolution of 1952, and was forced to abdicate in favor of his infant son Ahmed Fuad, who succeeded him as King Fuad II. He died in exile in Italy.

His sister was Princess Fawzia Fuad, first wife and Queen Consort of the Shah of Iran Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

Early life

   

As Crown Prince, Farouk held the rank of First Scout of Egypt.

Reign

The great-great-grandson of Khalid Kamel Pasha, Farouk was of Albanian descent as well as native Egyptian and Turkish descent through his mother Queen Nazli Sabri.[2][3] Before his father’s death, he was educated at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, England. Upon his coronation, the hugely popular 16-year-old King Farouk made a public radio address to the nation, the first time a sovereign of Egypt had ever spoken directly to his people in such a way:

And if it is God’s will to lay on my shoulders at such an early age the responsibility of kingship, I on my part appreciate the duties that will be mine, and I am prepared for all sacrifices in the cause of my duty… My noble people, I am proud of you and your loyalty and am confident in the future as I am in God. Let us work together. We shall succeed and be happy. Long live the Motherland!

Farouk was enamored of the glamorous royal lifestyle. Although he already had thousands of acres of land, dozens of palaces, and hundreds of cars, the youthful king would often travel to Europe for grand shopping sprees, earning the ire of many of his subjects. It is said that he ate 600 oysters a week.[4]

He was most popular in his early years and the nobility largely celebrated him. For example, during the accession of the young King Farouk, “the Abaza family had solicited palace authorities to permit the royal train to stop briefly in their village so that the king could partake of refreshments offered in a large, magnificently ornamented tent the family had erected in the train station.”[5]

Farouk’s accession initially was encouraging for the populace and nobility, due to his youth and Egyptian roots through his mother Nazli Sabri. However, the situation was not the same with some Egyptian politicians and elected government officials, with whom Farouk quarreled frequently, despite their loyalty in principle to his throne.

During the hardships of World War II, criticism was leveled at Farouk for his lavish lifestyle. His decision to not put out the lights at his palace in Alexandria, during a time when the city was blacked out because of German and Italian bombing, was deemed particularly offensive by Egyptian people. Due to the continuing British occupation of Egypt, many Egyptians, Farouk included, were positively disposed towards Germany and Italy, and despite the presence of British troops, Egypt remained officially neutral until the final year of the war. Consequently, the royal Italian servants of Farouk were not interned, and there is an unconfirmed story that Farouk told British Ambassador Sir Miles Lampson (who had an Italian wife), “I’ll get rid of my Italians when you get rid of yours”.[citation needed] In addition, Farouk was known for harbouring certain Axis sympathies and even sending a note to Hitler saying that an invasion would be welcome.[6] Farouk only declared war on the Axis Powers under heavy British pressure in 1945, long after the fighting in Egypt’s Western Desert had ceased.

Farouk is also reported as having said “The whole world is in revolt. Soon there will be only five Kings left — the King of England, the King of Spades, the King of Clubs, the King of Hearts, and the King of Diamonds.”[7]

Overthrow

Farouk was widely condemned for his corrupt and ineffectual governance, the continued British occupation, and the Egyptian army’s failure to prevent the loss of 78% of Palestine to the newly formed State of Israel in the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. Public discontent against Farouk rose to new levels.[citation needed] In the CIA, the project to overthrow King Farouk, known internally known as “Project FF [Fat Fucker]“,[8] was initiated by CIA operative Kermit Roosevelt, Jr. The CIA was disappointed in King Farouk for not improving the functionality and usefulness of his government,[9] and had actively supported the toppling of King Farouk by the Free Officers.[10] Finally, on 23 July 1952, the Free Officers Movement under Muhammad Naguib and Gamal Abdel Nasser staged a military coup that launched the Egyptian Revolution of 1952. Farouk was forced to abdicate, and went into exile in Monaco and Italy where he lived for the rest of his life.[citation needed] Immediately following his abdication, Farouk’s baby son, Ahmed Fuad was proclaimed King Fuad II, but for all intents and purposes Egypt was now governed by Naguib, Nasser and the Free Officers.[citation needed] On 18 June 1953, the revolutionary government formally abolished the monarchy, ending 150 years of the Muhammad Ali dynasty’s rule, and Egypt was declared a republic.[citation needed]

The revolutionary government quickly moved to auction off the King’s vast collection of trinkets and treasures.[citation needed] Among the more famous of his possessions was one of the rare 1933 Double Eagle coins, though the coin disappeared before it could be returned to the United States.[citation needed] He was also notorious for his collection of pornography.[11]

 Exile and death

Farouk I with his wife Narriman and their son Fuad II in exile in Capri, Italy (1953)

On his exile from Egypt, Farouk settled first in Monaco, and later in Rome, Italy. On 29 April 1958, the United Arab Republic issued rulings revoking the Egyptian citizenship of Farouk.[12] He was granted Monegasque citizenship in 1959 by his close friend Prince Rainier III.[13]

The blue-eyed Farouk was thin early in his reign, but later gained enormous weight. His taste for fine cuisine made him dangerously obese, weighing nearly 300 pounds (136 kg)—an acquaintance described him as “a stomach with a head”. He died in the Ile de France restaurant in Rome, Italy on 18 March 1965. He collapsed and died at his dinner table following a characteristically heavy meal.[14] While some claim he was poisoned by Egyptian Intelligence,[15] no official autopsy was conducted on his body. His will stated that his burial place should be in the Al Rifa’i Mosque in Cairo, but the request was denied by the Egyptian government under Gamal Abdel Nasser, and he was going to be buried in Italy. King Faisal of Saudi Arabia stated he would be willing to have King Farouk buried in Saudi Arabia, upon which President Nasser agreed for the former monarch to be buried in Egypt, not in the Mosque of Al Rifai’ but in the Ibrahim Pasha Burial Site.[citation needed]

A likely apocryphal story about Farouk’s lavish living in exile was that he refused to donate money to relieve poverty on the basis that “If I donate my fortune to buy food, all of Egypt eats today, eats tomorrow, and the day after that they are starving once again”, thus rationalizing his high living.

 Marriages and affairs

Farouk I with his wife Queen Farida and their first-born daughter Ferial (c. 1939)

In addition to an affair with the British writer Barbara Skelton, among numerous others, Farouk was married twice, with a claim of a third marriage (see below). His first wife was Safinaz Zulficar (1921–1988), the daughter of Youssef Zulficar Pasha. Safinaz was renamed Farida upon her marriage. They were married in 1938, and divorced in 1948, producing three daughters.

Farouk’s second wife was a commoner, Narriman Sadek (1934–2005). They were married in 1951, and divorced in 1954, having only one child, the future King Fuad II.

While in exile in Italy, Farouk met Irma Capece Minutolo, an opera singer, who became his companion. In 2005, she claimed that she married the former King in 1957.[16]

Children

 Style

The ostentatious king’s name is used to describe imitation Louis XV-style furniture known as “Louis-Farouk”. The imperial French style furniture became fashionable among Egypt’s upper classes during Farouk’s reign so Egyptian artisans began to mass-produce it. The style uses ornate carving, is heavily gilded, and covered in very elaborate cloth.[17] The style, or imitations thereof, remains widespread in Egypt.
