Speaking of Siva: Translated with an Introduction

By: A.K. Ramanujan

Price: $6.25

Publisher: New Delhi, India, Penguin: 1973

Edition: First Indian Edition

Seller ID: 011640

ISBN: 0140442707

Condition: New


Speaking of Siva is a collection of ‘mantras’ or free-verse lyrics written by four major saints of the great ‘bhakti’ protest movement which originated in the tenth century A.D. Composed in Kannada, a Dravidian language of South India, the poems are lyrical expressions of love for the god Siva. They mirror the urge to bypass tradition and ritual, to concentrate on the subject rather than the object of worship, and to express kinship with all living things in moving terms. Passionate, personal, fiercely monotheistic, these free verses possess an appeal, which is timeless and universal.... View more info

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

Publisher: London, UK, Routledge: 2008

Seller ID: 032753

Condition: New


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 a... View more info

The present work, with its comprehensiveness and openness of approach retrieves much of the valuable insights of Indian tradition my putting it in proper perspective.

Popularized in the West by Beat Generation writers Gary Snyder and Jack Kerouac, T’ang-era rebel poet Han Shan is an icon of Chinese poetry and Zen. He and his sidekick, Shih Te, are known as the laughing, ragged pair who left their poetry on stones, trees, farmhouses, and monastery walls, calling others to “the Cold Mountain way” of simple, honest, joyful living.J. P. Seaton takes a fresh look at these poets, as well as at Wang Fan-chih, who followed in the outsider tradition a few centuries later. Forceful and wry, all three condemn the excesses of mind and matter that prevent people f... View more info

Urdu poetry is a universe of lustrous pictures that presents in words of varying hue, a delicacy of thought, and depth of meaning. Every word, every simile and metaphor bears within itself a whole world of meaning, and thus is the virtue of a great language that represents a celebrated civilisation. This is the kind of poetry that can be rendered easily into English without hurting its poetic quality because it is free of the unnecessary ornamentation common to all Eastern poetry. Like most Indians of the current age, Idrak Bhatty too has been nurtured in both Eastern and Western cultures. The... View more info
