Honoured to find my poems Trapped and On Felling a Vazha among the winning poems. Thank you Judges Lopa Banerjee, Elizabeth Kuriakose and Dr. Ampat Koshy. Congrats to every one for writing such beautiful Roseate Sonnets and To Dr Koshy for this magnificient triumph of his innovative form.
Literary criticism -a call to be bolder, innovative and fearless and to take it forward instead of keeping within older patterns and limits-in short there is scope for thinking out of the box anyday. An excellent essay by Dr. Ampat Koshy.
Enjoyed this article thoroughly. I have read almost all the poets and writers who find a mention here and as always I am amazed at the deft analysis and the broad yet comprehensive approach covering such a vast area and bringing it all together under the umbrella of subversive, different, unique and startlingly refreshing writing. Panjami Anand’s poem like many more of hers is superb, honest writing and she is sure to leave her mark in the annals of great writing. The article rocks as does its writer.
An absorbing article, not only because I figure in it but because of the depth of analysis and a rational, comprehensive look at the chaotic scenario of Indians (with focus on Keralites) writing and trying to write in English today. With a sense of blessedness and deepest gratitude, I thank Dr Ampat Koshy for the article, mention, for the poem and link(Autumn resurrected) and for his guidance and encouragement that has been vital to my writing always. Looking forward to the next one with unbridled enthusiasm!
What a beautiful essay on relishing poetry! A treat for the senses and magical in the way it unveils the poems yet keeps their magic intact. The essay is as beautiful as the poems it mentions and studies and then a bit more. How To Enjoy a Poem – Learning and Creativity.
