Description

About the Book

Since its first publication, this book has become the most widely accepted and utilized anthology of modern Indian poetry in English. Compiled by R. Parthasarathy, himself an eminent writer and poet who has contributed to this volume, it carries verse by the country's best-known poets: A. K. Ramanujan, Nissim Ezekiel, Kamala Das, Arvind Krishna Mehrotra, Keki Daruwalla, Gieve Patel, Arun Kolatkar, Jayanta Mahapatra and Shiv K. Kumar, as well as brief introductory notes on each of them.

Excerpts for Reviews

'If anyone wants to know who the leading Indian poets are and what they write, this will henceforth be the obvious book to read.

-Indian Book Chronicle, Delhi

'This refreshing anthology is recommended to readers interested in the state of contemporary poetry. It introduces a new coinage.'

-British Book News

 

Preface

I should like to thank all the poets in this book for their kindness in allowing me to reprint from their published works and to look over their unpublished manuscripts. Their generosity has made this book possible. My thanks are due to the publishers and the editors of the periodicals, where some of the poems first appeard, for permission to reprint.

It has been a great pleasure to discuss this book in the making with friends, and I am indebted to Nimmim Ezekiel, Roger Iredale, S.Krishnan, Shiv K. Kumar, Jayanta Mahapatra, C.D. Narasimhaiah, K.Ayyappa Paniker, A. K. Ramanujan and M. Sivaram-Krishna for reading the book in manuscripts, offering suggestions and for their continuing help and co-operation.
