Poetry and Passion: The Search for the Other Voice
Poetry and Passion: The Search for the Other Voice
Description
From the Back of the Book

Poetry and Passion looks at revolutions and religion as counter-points to the other voice of poetry shorn of rhetoric and ideology. It emphasizes that poetry, like life, should either be intense or not at all. The passion which poetry emphasizes is life-giving and life-affirming. Its task is to make the dream possible and to discover the miracle in the ordinary day-to-day object and event.

About the Author

Sitakant Mahapatra is a major voice in Modern Indian Poetry. His poems have been published in translation in all Indian languages and most European languages including French, German, Spanish and Russian.

He received the Jnanpith award for 1993.

He now lives and works at Delhi.

Foreword to the Series

The Executive Board of the Sahitya Akademi passed a resolution on 24 February 1985 accepting the recommendations of he Committee set up for the establishment of a series of lectures in literary criticism called the Samvatsar lectures. A procedure was described by the Board for the selection of the annual Samvatsar lectures. The Samvatsar lecturer is expected to deliver two or three lectures on a theme chosen by him. It has also been laid down that these Samvatsar lectures would be published after they are delivered. The crucial clauses in the resolution relating to the Samvatsar lectures read as follows:

These lectures should reflect a deep concern for values. They should open up a new vistas of thinking regarding a literary movement, a current literary trend. Some original thinking about a great classic or a new path in literary criticism or literary creation, etc. The presentation should be from a larger perspective while the subject matter could be drawn from the regional or comparative sources within the speaker's experience.

I have great pleasure in writing this brief foreword.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
