Book Description

About the Book
A Selection of Contemporary Dogri Poetry is a volume which represents a wide variety of poems: right from the first published poem of Dinu Bhai Pant in 1944 to Ved Rahi's which came out in 2003. The approach in this selection as the translator says, is quite different. What are kept in view are a certain standard, poetic merit, imagery, intellectual element and susceptibility to rendition in simple English so that pieces do not look flat in English translation.

The volume shows the development of Dogri Poetry over a period of sixty years from idealism, sentimentalism and romanticism to impressionism and realism; from hesitancy and inhabited expression to more open, frank, uninhabited expression of feelings and emotions and finally from outside view of things to expression on inner tensions.
