This revised and updated edition brings together the poetry of three contemporary Indian poets--Nissim Ezekiel, A K Ramanujan, and Dom Moraes. Often considered the pioneers of modern Indi an poetry in English, they played significant roles in creating a cultural space for postcolonial Indian English-language verse. Three Indian Poets is an introduction to their lives and poetry, including the characteristics and development of each author's work. It examines their major concerns as well as the themes, preoccupations, traits, and evolution of their poetry. A brief biographical sketch of each poet is followed by a close literary analysis of his entire body of work and discussion of technique and individual poetic porcess. Included in this volume are three additional chapters (one on Ramanujan's Black Hen and two on Moraes' final four volumes), as well as updated biographical and bibliographical information. This study will be invaluable to students of Indian, Commonwealth, and postcolonial literature as well as the general reader with an interest in poetry. Printed Pages: 229.
