Product description

This book brings together the best of Assamese poet Sananta Tanty's poems for the first time in English translation. The collection traverses his literary journey from his ground-breaking debut in 1981 to his latest poems. These poems narrate the history of post-Independence Assam, seen from the margins by an audacious poet. But one who deftly makes the concerns of the marginalised universal, turns personal into political, and sublimates interpersonal love into patriotism. Kamalakar Bhat argues, 'Here is a poet who has the courage to be rooted in his personal perspective; yet, by the sheer force of the generality of his feelings, achieves a universality that elevates his poems and make them resonate with our everyday anxieties.' Says Tanty: 'All our lives all of us have just written one poem, the poem of humanity - in this huge epic being written from time immemorial, I have also added a few lines.' This book is an excerpt from that epic, the history of a man revealing within itself history of a people.

Sananta Tanty is a poet of love - the love that embraces all beings. Sananta Tanty is a poet of protest - his protest makes life eternally meaningful. Sananta Tanty is a poet of bright optimism - the source of which is the tireless struggle for people's rights. - Homen Borgohain

Tanty's poems have a force that drew attention to deeper issues often forgotten in the street fighting protests of Assam. As an emerging voice in the seventies from the tea gardens, Tanty influenced a generation of poets with his searing statement of society, life and love. - Kishalay Bhattacharjee
