This critical work is a rare collection of 24 well-crafted critical articles by eminent poets and critics from India and abroad on the poetry of T.V.Reddy, a luminous star shining in Indian English poetry. His poetry is a pleasant blend of the traditional and the modern, the realistic and the romantic, the symbolic and the imagist, the urban and the rural, social, satirical and spiritual streams of poetry. T.V.Reddy emerged as a potential signature with his quality-oriented poetry in English and he breathed into it both throbbing life and melody with its rare lyrical charm and his poems cover a wide range of themes from the village to the global level with intense focus on human values. It is not an exaggeration to say that very few poets can reach the lyrical heights he has scaled. Using very simple vocabulary, he conquers the minds of the readers and allures them to voyage through his poems. This book is indeed a treasure house for the poetry lovers of Prof. T. V. Reddy and an indispensible mine of secondary materials for scholars who aspire to do research on Dr. Reddy’s poetry.
