Product description


Dr. Kumaran has done great service to the contemporary Indian English poetry by editing this book on our contemporary poet -Dr. KV Dominic. The book has 24 articles by various critics and one interview with the poet that throws light on his poetic philosophy and creative art. He tells his interviewer: "The main objective of our life is happiness and we can attain this happiness best by serving others" (210); besides, "Man has to learn a lot from Nature, especially from the animal world" (211). In his introduction, PCK Prem observes that "Workers, farmers, laborers, and the exploited encourage him to write and write" (15), and in his article on Winged Reason, he observes that Dominic's poetry manifests "a humanitarian view of men in distress" (53). Kumaran traces Dominic's humanism in Winged Reason and observes: "the analysis reveals the poet's faith in didactic poetry and ascertains the relevance of his writing" (23). Sudhir Arora also explores Winged Reason critically and affirms: "The poet in Dominic is an angel who searches for the angelic qualities in men" (29). In Multicultural Symphony, Dr. Arora finds that the poet "is grieved when he sees the present India that has now become 'a hell of intolerance and religious fundamentalism'," and the poet is resolved "to win the hearts of his readers by virtue of his 'content'" (39). Chambial studies his book, Write Son, Write, and infers, in his study, that his poetry is full of "humanitarian philosophy steeped in contemporaneous societal consciousness" (45). TV Reddy, in his study of Winged Reason and Write Son, Write, argues that "his poems are a strong testimony of his socialistic ideas, to his leanings toward communistic ideology, and to his earnest zest as a social reformer" (61). Sugandha Agarwal opines that Dominic's poetry addresses "the entire humanity about its prevailing issues and problems in society. ... and [he] believes that the real wealth of a nation is its citizens" (78).
