P. M. Narayanan is not only a famous poet in Malayalam, but a brilliant prose writer too. The uniqueness I notice in his writing is that itcombines the bestqualities of the traditional and the modern inliterature.
P. M. Narayanan has a mindscape that surmounts all horizons. It is built with words of appropriate imports and purports. A very special understanding of the institution called the word is his most important tool. Here is a poet who takes the curvature of his own psyche intoconsideration while searching for the heart of a perception. The result is: he is nearer to truth.
– C. Radhakrishnan
P. M. Narayanan’s Shores of the Word carry poems that are deeply contemplative, mostly introspective, that look at life afresh. True to the Indian tradition, these poems often have a philosophical core. They retell myths and recharge archetypes with new meanings. They mediate between the word and the world and between the present and eternity.
