Description

The poetry of 'A Reluctant Survivor' is concerned with the self and the ways in which it negotiated the world and withdrew from it by turns. In this book, places and people can appear at once familiar and fantastic, vulnerable and strange.

Most of Sridala Swami’s poems are short and spare but her words are deceptively simple and her silences resonate with suggestions and ambivalences. More evocative than descriptive, these poems have an inwardness bordering on meditation, but there is also an engagement with the world outside – cities, temples, riot-ravaged streets. Above all, these poems reflect on the subtleties of human relationships.
