The Sejarah Melayu (Malay Annals), written in the
1500s, is the most important Malaysia literary work and tells the story
of a Malacca sultanate. Literature styles in Malaysia changed with
the influences of Europeans (Portuguese, Dutch, and English). The
classical literary style of Malay was eventually replaced in print with
the vernacular language. The first newspaper was written and
printed using the (vernacular) spoken language in 1876.
