Swatantryottar Marathi Kavita (1945-60)
Editor : Vasant Patankar
Swatantryottar Marathi Kavita (1945-60) A panorama of the Marathi poetry between 1945-60, edited by Vasant Patankar, eminent Marathi critic, presents a representation of thrilling diversity of the Marathi poetry in terms of form, diction, poetic implication. Patankar, in his scholarly introduction to the book, brilliantly points it out that the Marathi poetry of this period can clearly be studied considering three major streams – individual centred, collective existence centred, and aesthetics centred. It is indeed compelling to read the poetry of B.C. Mardhekar, P.S. Rege, Sharathchandra Muktibodh and other significant poets in this perspective.
