The Dance of the Peacock: An Anthology of English Poetry from India

The Dance of the Peacock: An Anthology of English Poetry from India

by Vivekanand Jha (Editor)




The Dance of the Peacock, focused as it is on poetry in English by Indians and diasporic Indians, is also a celebration of diversity. This anthology is a brave attempt to capture something of the Indian English global poetry scene at this moment in time. It does not pretend to be a comprehensive collection; rather it is a genuine and rewarding sampler for the reader who would like an introduction to its riches.
