Tamil Poetry for Daily Life

Author Name: Prabindh Sundareson | Format: Paperback | Genre : Letters & Essays | Other Details

In this bilingual book, the author takes the inquisitive reader through an unconventional poetic view of Sangam Tamil writings, through life situations that bring forward the Puram (புறம்) genre’s two thousand years of history to make it remarkably current. The English descriptions tread the middle path between a pedantic translation and street vocabulary, and the colors of life burst out vividly in each page through the Tamil verses, with different narratives co-existing with each other, through the eyes of a learned poet and interpreters.

Quoting the original Tamil text and interpreting it through the eyes of the poet and his entourage, more than a hundred situations in the book shed light on the beauty of Tamil text. Verses from Thiruvalluvar, Kambar, Avvaiyar, Agathiyar nestle comfortably with proverbs and colloquial sayings, prominently highlighting the richness that adorns Tamil poetry with a grace that has withstood the passage of time.

“...engages the reader with a timeless Tamil quote for every occasion in life…”

“....definitely opens a small but interesting door into the infiniteness of Tamil culture. A must read…”
