Angular Desire : Selected Poems and Prose, Paperback / softback Book

Angular Desire : Selected Poems and Prose Paperback / softback

Edited by Graziano Kratli, Vidyan Ravinthiran



Poetry Book Society Spring 2020 Special Commendation.

A handful of writers defines the canon of postcolonial anglophone poetry in India.

Srinivas Rayaprol has generally been omitted from the list, but his recently published correspondence with William Carlos Williams and publisher James Laughlin reveals an accomplished, complex and enigmatic figure torn between opposing forces.

His Brahmin Indian background and his profession as a civil engineer in a newly independent country were at odds with his Western education, literary vocation and demonic impulses.

Such contradictions are expressed in his intense poetry, here restored to print, providing insights into Anglo-Indian and American writing, and a unique contribution to international literary modernism.
