9780195639179: The Oxford Anthology of Modern Indian Poetry

The Oxford Anthology of Modern Indian Poetry is the first significant work of its kind, containing some of the finest Indian poetry written in the twentieth century. Collected here are one hundred and twenty-five poets in English and English translation from fourteen Indian languages. This volume covers several generations of writers and provides an overview of the many different schools, styles, figures, forms and movements in Indian poetry in the last hundred years.
While capturing some of the finest Indian poets, including Rabindranath Tagore, Subramania Bharati, Nirala, G. Shankara Kurup, and Kaifi Azmi, The Oxford Anthology of Modern Indian Poetry also represents the best work of nearly seventy translators from various countries. The poems, many translated into English for the first time, are grouped thematically to reveal patterns and movements in Indian poetry. The editors provide an illuminating Introduction and informative critical essay on the literary, historical, and social contents of modern Indian poetry, as well as biographical notes on contributors, and suggestions for further reading.
As a work of craftsmanship and learning, The Oxford Anthology of Modern Indian Poetry is a source of discovery and delight for first-time readers and scholars alike.

Book Description Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. First Edition. This anthology, the first significant work of its kind, contains some of the finest Indian poetry written in the 20th century. It brings together 125 poets in English and English translation from 14 Indian languages, providing an ideal overview of the major figures, forms, and movements in Indian poetry in the last 100 years. The poets featured range from Rabindranath Tagore and Subramania Sharati to Anuradha Mahapatra, Saleem Peeradina, and Vikram Seth. `Subaltern' poets such as Narayan Surve and Namdeo Dhasal are included, as well as three generations of women poets, from Balamani Indira Sant to Revathi Devi and Gagan Gill. Besides displaying the diversity of modern Indian poetry, the anthology reveals its coherent patterns and developments by arranging the poets and poems in eight thematic sections which explore many of the central concerns of our times: love and desire, kinship and domesticity; the imagination and the creative process; the play of knowledge and understanding; the interdependence of human culture and natural environment.
