About the Book


 

Cultural and Philosophical Reflections in Indian Poetry in English Volume IV (Milestones) treats the four milestones of Indian Poetry in English namely: Shiv K. Kumar, Keki N. Daruwalla, Jayanta Mahapatra and R. Parthasarathy. These four Indian poets are the milestones on the long way to Indian Poetry in English as they have enriched the field by setting new trends and techniques. Shiv K. Kumar revives the cultural identity mutilated by colonial experience and assimilates foreign culture into the native. As his conception of morality is unconventional, he exposes hypocrisy in his poetry. What he wishes to articulate is articulated in a straightforward manner because he follows intuitions which, for him, are certainly better than the reasons that confine mind to a particular centre. Keki N. Daruwalla is a forceful poetic voice by virtue of his painting the landscapes ranging from the quotidian experiences to the cultural and mythical consciousness via highlighting the decay and degeneration in the contemporary society with the narrative brush that possesses the miracle to transform into universal what is personal though he has to use the dark colours like irony and satire for highlighting the impressions. Jayanta Mahapatra’s poetic canvas is coloured with his identification with the Orissan landscapes which he portrays through myths, symbols and metaphors. He mixes feeling and thought in order to colour the landscapes and inscapes which are highlighted with the shades of Indianness. R. Parthasarathyis a poetwith Rough Passage, the only collection which, for him, proves to be a voyage within. No doubt, he criticizes Tamil culture not because he is against it but because he longs for its restoration to its former self.

The present book will dish out a poetry feast to the UG and PG students, research scholars, teachers, poetry lovers and even general readers by raising their curiosity for further fresh ponderings and researches on these milestones.
