Author: C P Surendran
ISBN/UPC (if available): 067088869
With this collection of poems, the author establishes himself as one of the best poets who writes in English in India.
Stark and often violent, Surendran's poems reflect his preoccupation with love, death and loneliness as well as an acute awareness of alienation. Imbued with a rare intensity and integrity, they echo in our minds long after we have read them.
Surendran does not celebrate the world, he berates it. His attitude towards it is angry, bitter, even hostile. But one is also conscious of a deep sadness in his poetry. All these qualities give it great and unusual power.
