Poetry. South Asian Studies. Translated and Edited by Chelva Kanaganayakam. This collection brings together seventy-five poems by three internationally known Tamil poets--R Cheran, V.I.S. Jayapalan, and Puthuvai Ratnathurai--whose works, over the last three decades, have dealt with issues ranging from ethnicity and nationalism, to religion and diaspora. Together they have shaped the Tamil literary tradition, urging the reader to look at the past and present in new and important ways. All three poets have confronted the reality of Sri Lankan violence, displacement, and struggle in different ways, but reading them together reveals both connections and differences.
