PERSPECTIVES ON INDIAN POETRY IN ENGLISH
PERSPECTIVES ON INDIAN POETRY IN ENGLISH
Description

About the Book:

While numerous collections of critical essays on Indian poetry in English have appeared during recent years, none of them has perhaps the range and the depth of this volume. Instead of confining its attention merely to post-Independence poetry alone as most of these collections do, it tries to cover the entire panorama of Indian English verse right form its hesitant beginnings in Henry Derozio to the present day. Furthermore, apart form presenting authoritative evaluations of the work of the major poets, it also offers intensive textual analyses of outstanding poems like "Savitri', 'Gitanjali' and 'Jejuri'.

The contributors include eminent scholars such as D.R. Srinivasa Iyengar, V.A. Shahane, Paul Verghese, S.K. Desai, Prema Nandakumar and the editor, M.K. Naik.

The carefully selective Bibliography appended to the collection has further enhanced its value as a comprehensive collection of incisive critical studies covering the entire range of Indian poetry in English. This volume is a worthy successor to this editor's Perspectives on Indian Drama in English (1977) and Perspectives on Indian Prose in English (Abhinav Publications, 1982).

About the Editor:

Distinguished critic, editor and historian of Indian English Literature, M.K. Naik has published numerous studies including Raja Rao (1972 and 1982), Mulk Raj Anand (1973), A history of Indian English Literature (1982), The Ironic Vision : A Study of the Fiction of R.K Narayan (1983) and dimension of Indian English Literature (1984). Prominent among the collections edited by him are Critical Essays on Indian Writing in English (1968, 72 and 77), Aspects of Indian Writing in English (1979) and The Indian English Short Story : A Representative Anthology (1884).

Professor Naik was awarded a National Fellowship for research in 1978. He Presided over the thirty third session of the All India English Teachers' Conference held in Delhi in 1982.

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
