Book Contents


Back cover Some comments on I.K. Sharma’s Poetry


If good poetry is felt before it is understood, the poems of Mr.I.K.Sharma… are better. The reader will acknowledge the comprehension and the feelings of the poems simultaneously. -- --Poetry


A poet who realizes his poetic mission and the nobility of his art cannot be a mediocre poet.-----World Literature Today


The Poetry of Sharma is happily free from flamboyance in expression and morbidity in feeling. At times his lines reveal unreachable depths of thought and feeling like clear-flowing waters, of a deep river.---Triveni


… the future Indian poet, can neither afford to be apolitical nor asocial, neither a downright ruralite nor an ivory-towered or business-minded self-absorbed town dweller, neither a sentimental romanticist nor a die-hard inhuman automation—he must be alive to reality, an all-round, all-embracing reality, regional national and international: and I.K.Sharma will have to be admitted as an important link in all this scheme.----- Poetcrit


About the Book


The book contains an analytical but critical study of the poetry of I. K. Sharma. The critics have most capably and creditably examined his poetry in all its multi-dimensional aspects. There is originality of poetic thought, fertility of keen imagination and the right application of metaphor. His poems are generally short and condensed marked by brevity and precision. His poetry is full of liveliness and variety, vigor and vitality. All the poems bear the stamp of common life in particular. A poet of social protest, I.K. Sharma is a signature on the sands of Indian English Poetry.
