Description

This select anthology of poetry brings representative works of some of Sri Lanka's most respected poets. Written mostly after independence, the collection maps the trends and developments in the growth of poetry from the island nation.

Drawn from Sinhala, Tamil and English, this anthology holds a mirror to today's Sri Lanka, casting kaleidoscopic images of many hues. Poems that reflect a patchwork quilt of identities, human emotions and struggles. Lines that chart the eventful journey of a country in transition.

Rajiva Wijesinha, until recently Senior Professor of Languages at Sabaragamuwa University in Sri Lanka, is currently a Member of Parliament of Sri Lanka. He read Classics and did his doctorate in English at Oxford University. His writings include works of fiction, political history and philosophy. Recent publications include The Limits of Love
