The Indian Imagination of Jayanta Mahapatra

Gauri Shankar Jha (Author) Jaydeep Sarangi (Editor)
Synopsis Jayanta Mahapatra (b. 1928) is one of the leading contemporary Indian poets writing in English. His sphere of pursuits is very wide. The Indian Imagination of Jayanta Mahapatra critically examines various themes in the works of jayanta Mahapatra. It is a compilation of critical articles of reputed scholars of Jayanta Mahapatra's works. This book is probably the first book that critically assesses almost all aspects of Jayanta Mahapatra's Work. His strength is derived from bilingualism. This edited book on Mahapatra contains an article on his Oriya writings. His prose works often complete the circle and turn in themselves in such a manner that their form becomes the meaning with which they are haunted. This anthology of studied articles is not all about his poems. In addition, there is Jaydeep Sarangi's interesting interview with him. Since Jayanta Mahapatra has lived all along in Tinkonia Bagicha, Cuttack, his sensibility has been shaped by the socio-Cultural heritage of his native land in particular and India in general. The analysis reveals that the works of Mahapatra are steeped in an imagination, which is truly Indian.
