"Speaking of Siva is a collection of vacanas or free-verse lyrics written by four major saints of the great bhakti protest movement which originated in the tenth century A.D. Composed in Kannada, a Dravidian language of South India, the poems are lyrical expressions of love for the god Siva."--Back cover
The interior landscape : love poems from a classical Tamil anthology by A. K Ramanujan( Book )

33 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in English and German and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Interior Landscape the great Indian poet and translator A.K. Ramanujan has drawn on a celebrated anthology of classical Tamil poetry to compose an unforgettable sequence of love poems. The story unfolds in a series of dramatic exchanges between a shifting array of characters—the lovers, relatives, friends, rivals, and sundry passersby—and as it does we are conducted through five phases of love, from first meeting, anxiety, infidelity and separation to final union, each associated with a lush interior landscape of its own. Immersed in the glories of the natural world, the poems evoke the whole spectrum of love while also capturing the gossip and wisecracking of those who look on from outside."--Publisher description

Samskara : a rite for a dead man by U. R Anantha Murthy( Book )

33 editions published between 1976 and 2016 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Samskara is one of the acknowledged masterpieces of modern world literature, a book to set beside Chinua Achebe s Things Fall Apart and Tayeb Salih s Season of Migration to the North. Taking its name from a Sanskrit word that means rite of passage but also moment of recognition, it begins when Naranappa, an inhabitant of a small south Indian town and a renegade Brahmin who has scandalously flouted the rules of caste and purity for years, eating meat, drinking alcohol, marrying beneath him, mocking God, unexpectedly falls ill and dies

The collected poems of A.K. Ramanujan by A. K Ramanujan( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ramanujan is best known for his pioneering translations of ancient Tamil poetry into modern English. These permanently altered perceptions of the Indian literary map in the West. Before him, ancient Indian literature was thought to be mainly Sanskritic. After he published The Interior Landscape, Poems of Love and War, and other volumes between the sixties and the eighties, it became apparent to modern poets and scholars that there was a wealth of poetry in other Indic traditions."--BOOK JACKET

"These four works add yet another dimension to the contribution A. K. Ramanujan has made to Indian and American literature. The books of poems - No Lotus in the Navel, And Other Poems, and Kuntobille - are written in an extraordinary variety of modes and moods. Ramanujan, the poet, roams freely and widely in Kannada, the language of his childhood. He quarrels with himself, with his traditional roots, and his adopted country, giving us memorable poems such as: O Lord, Whether You Exist; A King of Soliloquies, and The River."--BOOK JACKET
