Description
About the Author

K. Satchidanandan (b.1946) has been hailed by critics as a pioneer of the New Poetry in Malayalam. The publication of his first collection of poetry, Anchusooryan (Five Suns), in 1970 was a major event in Malayalam literature. Since then he has published twenty-one more. His poems have appeared in several national and international journals and anthologies of world literature like Two Plus Two (Switzerland), Voices of Conscience (London), Language for a New Century (Norton, New York) and Noir Sur Blanc (Paris). He has collections of poetry in translation in all the major Indian languages besides German, Arabic, Italian and French.

He has five collections of poems in English translation. Besides about sixty significant Indian poets, Satchidanandan has translated several European, Latin American, African and Asian poets into Malayalam and many Malayalam poets into English.

He has won twenty-four national and international awards, including the Kerala Sahitya Akademi award four times. He has also received the India-Poland Friendship medal from the Government of Poland and Knighthood of the Order of Merit from the Government of Italy. A biographical film on him, Summer Rain, directed by Balu Menon was released recently in Kerala.
