In this book of conversations with eminent Indian poets writing in English, the first of its kind, the celebrated poets provoke, analyze and meditate. When you write about your own feelings, it is authentic. When I write about other people I don't feel fulfilled as a writer. I don't find my face floating above the words . For Kamla Das the most important quality for creativity is authenticity. The in-depth interviews with Eunice de Souza cover background, beliefs, ideas about poetry, each poet's development and other work done such as translations and plays. The book includes biographical notes on the poets as well as brief discussions of their work.
