About the Book
Like Mist Through Valleys is the translation of Sahitya Akademi award-winning collection of Kannada poems Mabbina Haage Kaniveyassi by HS Shiva Prakash.

The poems here explore several related themes and experiment with several genres of poetry. Sad, angry, satirical and metaphysical, they take the reader into various dimensions of contemporary experience and at the same time they celebrate the human power of survival, resistance and resilience.

The forms pressed into the service include songs, sonnets, prose poems, dramatic narrative and satire.

About the Author
HS Shiva Prakash is the most influential Kannada poet and playwright of the post-1970 generation. Though shaped by modernist influences, he soon moved away from them and created a style all his own. Its roots deep in millennium-long Kannada traditions, his poetry has responded to and absorbed into itself varied voices of contemporary Indian and world poetry. He has extended and enriched the style and substance of Kannada poetry.

The present volume is the watershed between his early poetry of indignation and his later poetry of celebration and fortitude. HS Shiva Prakash is the author of 11 books of poems, 13 plays, 4 prose works and editor of several anthologies of creative and critical writings.

He is now Professor, School of Arts & Aesthetics at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.
