      K. V. Dominic Essential Readings and Study Guide

      Poems about Social Justice, Women's Rights, and the Environment

      by K. V. Dominic

      K. V. Dominic Essential Readings gathers for the first time the three most important works of poetry from this shining new light of contemporary Indian verse in English: Winged Reason, Write Son, Write andMulticultural Symphony. A fourth collection of 22 previously unpublished poems round out a complete look at the first 12 years of Dominic’s prolific and profound verse. Each poem includes unique Study Guide questions suitable for South Asian studies curricula.Written in free verse, each of his poems makes the reader contemplate on intellectual, philosophical, spiritual, political, and social issues of the present world. Themes range from multiculturalism, environmental issues, social mafia, caste-ism, exploitation of women and children, poverty, and corruption to purely introspective matters. From the observation of neighborhood life to international events, and everyday forgotten tragedies of India, nothing escapes the grasp of Dominic’s keen sense of the fragility of life and morality in the modern world.

      Laurel

      Poems of Love, Loss and Rivalry

      by Peter Cowlm

      A sequence of poems whose terrain is love, loss and lovers’ rivalries. ‘His poems have an epic feel…painting vivid pictures with the fewest words possible. This new collection gathers together threads of irony, self-deprecating nostalgia, and linguistic playfulness in one powerful skein of sharp, imagistic one-liners.’ Jane Holland, author of Disreputable ‘His spare poems brilliantly unfold an inner landscape on a complex journey of the heart that feels both personal and universal.’ Rachel Blum, author of The Doctor of Flowers ‘I am reminded of T. E. Hulme’s imagist poems I discovered as a teenager through Herbert Read’s The True Voice of Feeling. Laurel is a distillation of mood, atmosphere, feeling, expressed in a direct and surprising way, with the infinite – sky, sea, moon, sun – brought close to us and homely.’ Garry O’Connor, author of The Vagabond Lover The wholefrangible cosmos is this focusof indifference here on this empty bench where sometimes we sat.

      Song of Raven

      by Katerina Naumenko

      Long poem-story illustrated by author, nine colored-pencil images inside ranging from 1/3 to full page in size. Blurb for the back cover:Have you ever dreamt of high adventure?Has your soul unendingly ripped at its reigns - To defend your truth with light and rapture,And serve others truly without gains?Oh dear stranger, the story now before you,Let me tell with innocence of youth;Of a maid, both brave and noble,Serving others well, and serving truth.Let the stamping hooves, like drum-roll beating,Hold your place, as your soul takes flight,To delight in marvels, and …some battles,Both in the field, and youth’s fair trials of right.

      Hearsay

      by Lee Robinson

      Hearsay celebrates a woman's life from childhood to middle age, including the often-ignored subject of work, with a voice that is sometimes tender, sometimes whimsical, but always strong. The winner of the 2003 Poets Out Loud Prize, this collection "proffers craft and vision; it begins, one might say, in delight and ends in wisdom" (Robert Wrigley, judge).
