7 Collected Poems

Nissim Ezekiel

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0-19-567249-6 / 9780195672497, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
The period in modern Hindi literature known as 'Chayavad' marked the first blossoming of poetry in the language which, for its originality, depth, and technical resourcefulness, still remains unsurpassed. This anthology provides a sampling of the works of four major poets of this revival--Jayshankar Prasad, Suryakant Tripathi 'Nirala', Sumitranandan Pant, and Mahadevi Varma. Like the Romantic age in the West, Chayavad was marked with elements of symbolism and mysticism. Upa nishadic teachings, the English Romantic poets, the French Symbolists, Rabindranath Tagore, Sanskrit aesthetics--all influenced this genre. In Chayavad poetry, modern Hindi attained an incontestable brilliance and elegance of expression. Chayavad poets are known outside India by the few available translations of their elegant, yet often baffling, short lyrics. This unique volume brings together translations of a few significant long poems--Prasad's Amsu (a poem of philosophical import) and Nirala's Ram ki Shakti-Puja (a short epic on the theme of war). Also included is a selection of the more typical short lyrics by all four poets, many of them previously untranslated. Printed Pages: 144. 028429

Concepts of Riti and Guna in Sanskrit Poetics in Their Historical Development, P.C. Lahiri
8 Concepts of Riti and Guna in Sanskrit Poetics in Their Historical Development

P.C. Lahiri

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1974, 81-7069-034-X / 9788170690344, First Indian Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
This volume is a study of the two concepts of Sanskrit Alamkara viz., Guna and Riti which are intimately allied to each other, in the different creative writers of the Sastra from Bharata down to Jagannatha. In tracing the development of the Riti-Guna theory, it has been the aim of the author, to utilise all available sources-printed texts as well as manuscripts-and he has based his deductions from the writings of different theories only after close, careful and critical observations of the various points in their treatment of these topics.

Penguin, New Delhi, India, 2004, 0670057967 / 9780670057962, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Journeys are voyages of discovery, infinitely enriching explorations of the self and of the universe. Journeys can take you to the Himalayas, across oceans, into the wilderness of forests and to the farthest corners of the earth and the human mind. Such journeys are sagas of the human spirit and of endurance—the will to break free from the mundane and the familiar. This unique volume of twenty-two essays, photoessays and critical texts brings together accounts of epic heroes and saints, pilgrims and trekkers, journalists and photographers, historians and folklorists. They are travellers who chart their course across vast seas and countries other than their own in search of the unknown and the exotic. While their narratives may be deeply personal, they are, ultimately, accounts of voyages that are universal. At times these are private confessions that transcend details of geography and conquest to express the solitude of the traveller. This volume also includes moving accounts of spiritual journeys that delve into the recesses of the mind—like those of Akkamahadevi, Bulle Shah, Nanak, and countless poets, singers and saints—and journeys typical of the Indian tradition—those of the yogi prince, renouncing the illusionary nature of the finite world to attain immortality. And finally, there is the journey through life by those who are touched by a moment of revelation which transforms their inner and outer selves. Here we follow the path taken by a writer, an artist, a dancer and an activist as they speak of transformation. Deeply felt, revelatory and inspiring, the writings in Journeys explore voyages both finite and infinite—journeys into the unknown and into the inner psyche that are a reaffirmation of the power of the human spirit and imagination. 002770

46 Poetry, Politics and Culture: Essays on Indian Texts and Contexts

Akshaya Kumar

Routledge, London, UK, 2008, 0415480051 / 9780415480055, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
This book maps the journey of the Indian poetic imagination—in Hindi, Panjabi and Indian English—from its original quasi-spiritual longings to its activist interventions in the public domain. As Indian poetry of the post-1990s gravitates towards a non-Orientalised postcolonial nationalism, it seeks to rewrite and disseminate the shifting coordinates of nationalist imagination in terms of the dissent of the subaltern discontents of the nation. The book is interdisciplinary: it studies Indian poetry from the new emerging imperatives of postcolonialism, new historiography (subaltern, dalit and diasporas), nationalism, and cultural studies. Covering the two major north Indian languages—Hindi and Punjabi—along with poetry in Indian English, the book is a close textual study of about 150 poetry collections in these languages. It is path-breaking in its study of secular poetry written in the so-called vernaculars, with critical attention to its participation in the political as well as cultural processes of nation-making. This cutting-edge book should be of interest to scholars of Indian writings in English, Hindi and Panjabi, gender studies, dalit and diaspora studies, postcolonial poetry and to students reading South Asian literature and culture. Table of Contents 1. Preface 2. Acknowledgement Part I: Mapping Nation/Post-nation 3. Negotiating Nationalism(s): Hindi Poetry during and after the Colonial Period 4.
