Poetry Manifesto ( New & Selected Poems ) 1 edition
‘One of the pleasures gained by reading Vihang Naik’s poetry is the awareness that every poem, both singly and when placed together as a body of work , demonstrates a belief in the possibilities language might have to truthfully and energetically communicate the writing experience’-The Journal of Poetry Society ( India ). ‘Naik maps out the way in which a poem instills life into words’-Indian Literature : A Sahitya Akademi's Bi Monthly Journal ,New Delhi , India . About City Times & Other Poems ‘he [ Vihang A. Naik ] poet has something up his sleeve to say beyond the appearances’- Indian Book Chronicle.
City Times & Other Poems , which appeared in 1993 , was Vihang A. Naik’s first collection ; his Making A Poem, was published in 2004 by Allied Publishers , Mumbai after his Gujarat collection of poetry , Jeevangeet which appeared in 2001 . This definitive edition, testimony to his prodigious output so far and astonishing breath of vision, brings together from over 1993 to 2009 of Vihang A. Naik’s work and also includes a whole new section of new poems.
The poems in this collection are vintage Vihang A. Naik poems: intuitive, thoughtful, philosophical and creative pieces where the poet displays a mature, confident command, with a fine balance of emotional intensity, irony, ranging across themes and places with experimentation.
A literary landmark from an authentic Indian poetic voice
