About the Book

An established classic, A.K. Ramanujan's Collected Poems represents the complex distillation of a lifetime of unusually rich sensitivity, intellectual rigour, and feeling. Best known for his pioneering translations of ancient Tamil poetry into English, Ramanujan made it apparent to modern poets and scholars that there was a wealth of poetry yet to be discovered in several Indic traditions.

About the Author

A.K. Ramanujan (1929 - 1993) was one of the finest Indian poets writing in English, and probably the most scholarly. At the time of his death he was Professor of Linguistics at the University of Chicago, and was universally acknowledged as the authority on South Indian language and culture Photo : K.G. Somsekher
