The Interior Landscape
Classical Tamil Love PoemseBook - 2014
In The Interior Landscape the great Indian poet and translator A.K. Ramanujan has drawn on a celebrated anthology of classical Tamil poetry to compose an unforgettable sequence of love poems. The story unfolds innbsp; a series of dramatic exchanges between a shifting array of characters--the lovers, relatives, friends, rivals, and sundry passersby--and as it does we are conducted through five phases of love, from first meeting, anxiety, infidelity and separation to final union, each associated with a lush interior landscape of its own. Immersed in the glories of the natural world, the poems evoke the whole spectrum of love while also capturing the gossip and wisecracking of those who look on from outside.
