About the Book

Varavara Rao: A Life in Poetry is the first-ever collection in English of poems by the Telugu poet selected and translated from sixteen books that he has published. Having begun to write poetry in his early teens Varavara Rao now in his early eighties continues to be a doyen of Telugu modern poets. He was a consistent comrade-in-letters to all the social movements from the 1960s to the 2010s and this volume is a capsule of momentous social history captured in his poetic imagination. The poems in the collection offer an artistic blend of tender response and thoughtful reaction to social realities as well as an explosion of powerful emotions from a voice sought to be subdued.
