Book Description

Ever since he published his first book of poems A Guarded Space (1981) the trajectory of Manohar Shetty's poetry has gradually shifted from the intensely personal to embrace and encapsulate a wider and increasingly fractious world.

Using dovetailing internal rhythms and his trademark offbeat metaphors Shetty interweaves a hard-won lightness of touch with sardonic humour a reinvention of Indian English and cutting irony to expose the scars of an iniquitous society emerging in the process as a quiet but distinctive and resilient voice in contemporary English verse in India.

This is a book to be savoured and treasured.
