Telugu Dalit Poetry Today
Editor : Thummapudi Bharathi
Telugu Dalit Poetry Today edited by Thummapudi Bharathi is a collection of 61 poems written by well-known and some low profile Telugu Dalit poets. The poems in this anthology have to be read against the backdrop of social and economic injustice that Dalits suffered for many centuries. A majority of the poets besides proclaiming self-respect for Dalits, questioned and protested against the existing social structure in their poems. In the present socio-economic, political scenario and social justice, these poems certainly give a vivid picture of Dalit life in India and remain a valuable source for students and scholars who are genuinely interested to have an in-depth study of this section of society.
