English in India has made a stay today, and Indian English Literature has earned worldwide critical acclaim. There is no doubt that Indian poetry in English has acquired a regional bias, and the poets are definitely influenced by the geographical regions they belong to.
In this book, Dr Nandini Sahu attempts to make a study of the poetry of Jayanta Mahapatra, A K Ramanujan, R Parthasarathy and Kamala Das-the four major voices in contemporary Indian English Poetry-with a view to identifying the significance of recollection as a mode of redemption. This study shows how the four poets incorporate memory as a metaphor and use it for therapeutic purposes in the corpus of their poetry.
