Nine Indian Women Poets (An Anthology)
Nine Indian Women Poets (An Anthology)
Description
About the Book:

This collection of witty, ironic, poignant, and technically assured poems is an example of some of the best contemporary Indian poetry today. The intention in bringing together these poems was to represent the growing maturity evident in the themes and styles of the poetry of Indian women. While acquaints the reader with the variety in each poet's work, the prime consideration of Nine Indian Women Poets is the intrinsic quality of the poems themselves - their subject, their language and craftsmanship

The anthology covers nine Indian women poets writing in English, representing two generations of post-Independence poets. Included here, with brief biographical introductions, are Kamala Das, Mamta Kalia, Melanie Silgardo, Eunice de Souza, Imtiaz Dharker, Smita Agarwal, Sujata Bhatt, Charmayne D'Souza, and Tara Patel.

This book contains a general introduction which provides an overview of the work of Indian women poets since 1000 BC, and of relevant anthologies and other critical works. It is a must for those interested in contemporary poetry, especially by Indian Women writing in English.

About the Author:

Eunice de Souza retired as the Head of the Department of English, St. Xavier's College, Mumbai.

Excerpts from Reviews

'There are ten good reasons to buy this book. Nine of them are the poets of the title…The tenth is Eunice de Souza's no-nonsense introduction…'

-The Pioneer

'…this anthology is marked by an admirable maturity of prose…'

-Outlook

'Eunice de Souza's anthology is a meticulously edited version of female voices that constitute a spectrum in relocating a new territory.'

-Hindustan Times

'Eunice de Souza's anthology stands its ground as an excellent record of the poetry produced by Indian women since the 1960s.'

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
