About the Book


The poetry of Shiv K Kumar is relocated and explored in all dimensions and in particular, Confessional, Post-colonial, Autobiographical, Indian Sensibility, Inter textual connections and Man-Woman relationship. Kumar is best known for sensitivity and sensibility in IEP. If one recollects his poetry, it can be summed up in “I wanna go home/ before I am hounded out”. Kumar is a fantastic artisan of words. He is apt and subtle and his superb craftsmanship can be seen in the criticism of this book. The explication of his poetry speaks of an extraordinary poetic genius in Shiv K Kumar who not only speaks but also makes us speak.
