This is the first comprehensive anthology of English verse written by Indians and includes selection from 108 poets, from Derozio and Toru Dutt of the last century to A K Ramanujan and Kamala Das to today.
Such a volume is of considerable historical value and contemporary interest. Indo-Anglian poetry, like the rest of modern Indian poetry, is Indian first and everything else afterwards. It has voiced the aspiration, the joys and sorrows of the Indian people.
The bibliographies add to the value of the book as a useful source of related information.
