Description: In translating these poems from the ancient Dravidian into English, the celebrated poet and translator A. K. Ramanujan (who died in 1993) has rendered two important services: he has introduced Indian and Western readers to an unfamiliar and fascinating literary tradition, and he has provided access to some exquisite examples of a mature classical poetry. In them, as the translator notes, 'passion is balanced by courtesy, transparency by ironies and nuances of design, impersonality by vivid detail, spareness by richness of implication.' The poems come from one of the earliest surviving texts of Tamil poetry, the Kuruntokai, an anthology of love lyrics probably recorded during the first three centuries A.D. Seventy-six of these classical poems have here been given a modern language and form. In an effort at fidelity to the effect of the images and their placement in the original, Ramanujan has given a visual shape to the poems by typographic devices. This classic anthology of translations has long been out of print. It will interest all those who read poetry, as well as those who value Ramanujan's remarkable gifts as a translator.
