Poems of Subramania Bharati
Poems of Subramania Bharati
Description
From the Jacket:

Subramania Bharati (1882-1921), supreme among twentieth century Tamil poets, has also been one of the major creatie forces of the modern renaissance in Tamil Nadu, and has been described as Agastya incarnate who re-created Tamil. Although Bharati died young, his collected poems make a volume of 600 pages, marked by opulence as well as variety, and noted alike for their vitality and musical quality as also their emotional and spiritual appeal.

Dr. Prema Nandakumar has here given a sensitive English rendering of 60 representative pieces, and though these form no more than about one-fifth of the Bharati Canon, they will nevertheless prove a stimulating introduction to Bharati's manfold and magnificent poetic achievement.

Dr. Nandakumar's Bharati in English Verse (1958), the nucleus of the present work, was hailed by Rajaji as "the most beautiful and flawless translation, an equistic success in a very difficult task." In the present greatly enlarged volume, while the English renderings are at once reliable and readable, the comprehensive biographical and critical introduction attempts a balanced assessment of the Man and his work, and will help to make them known to an international audience.

About the Author:

Prema Nandakumar (b. 1939) had her education in Andhra University, Waltair, and took a first class Honours degree in English in 1957, and her Ph.D. in 1961.

More than 30 publications to her credit, she has also published a brief Biographies of Sri Aurobindo (1972), and her study of the 'Mother' of Sri Aurobindo Ashram and Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.

Dr. Nandakumar's reviews, essays and short stories have over a period of 30 years appeared in various Indian and foreign journals. Of her collection, The Glory and the Good (1965), Prof. Henry W. Wells wrote in Literature: East West: "It would be difficult to find a more comprehending book in literary exposition during the last year or two in any land. The work issues spontaneously from the heart and soul of modern India."

I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
