Description

About the Book:

In this book, Mehrotra has put together an unusually sensitive selection of fine verse in English by some of his best contemporaries. Many of the poems chosen either present new facets of recognized faces, or deliberately differ from those repeatedly on offer in the more standard, mimic anthologies. An insightful and analytical commentary includes essential biographical information, and introduces each of the poets. Although brief, these introductory pieces are so well written as to be of interest in themselves.

The poets who appear in this anthology are Nissim Ezekiel, Jayanta Mahapatra, A.K. Ramanujan, Arun Kolatkar, Keki N. Daruwalla, Dom Moraes, Dilip Chitre, Eunice de Souza, Adil Jussawalla, Agha Shahid Ali, Vikram Seth, and Manohar Shetty.

A must for those interested in poetry, this book will also be appreciated by those who would like to know more about the poetic usage of English in contemporary India.

About the Author:

Arvind Krishna Mehrotra is a well-known poet, translator and critic-historian.

Excerpts from Reviews:

'…the lengthy but absorbing introduction manifests a learned mind who's done enough spadework to undertake such a venture…'

-Economic Times

'[Mehrotra's] brilliant introduction and notes on individual poets convey to us the complexities of their careers and imaginations, and give us a sense of a tradition of Indian verse in English…'

-Times Literary Supplement
