There are so many reasons for it. I am marked by the slow venom of need. To paint the image against the backdrop of bright and shadowed lights is the flair of the writer.

It seems so strange looking at one another and finding ourselves go into the distances of our eyes; even my wife does not look as if she belonged to me, and even the spittle I swallow every hour has nothing perhaps to do with me, like that unreachable Girl who leads me to a dim corner of my conscience, alone.

White-clad widowed Women past the centers of their lives are waiting to enter the Great Temple Their austere eyes stare like those caught in a net hanging by the dawn’s shining strands of faith.

He is first and foremost an Oriya rather than an Indian. My love for you is a selfish love, wing of decit. A singer of Ireland not, but of Orissa, its history, art, sculpture, tradition and space, he goes in the way of his to be a Gregoryian ballad singer. And what is it now that scatters the tide in the shadow of this proud watercourse? How light leaves by the door. His poems have appeared in most of the reputed journals of the world.

A Missing Person (Jayanta Mahapatra)

Linguistically rather than thematically, he goes on keeping us on the tenterhooks. Nothing is concrete, everything in a flux, floating and passing, so much abstract and condensed, with blank thinking and reflection. Besides poetry, he has experimented widely with myriad forms of prose. Old brassy bells moulded by memories, dark, unfulfilled, to make the year come back again — a recurring prayer.


But then the sun comes down on me. Books, Kottayam, Bare Face, D. Just like Robert Frost, he views the beauty and mystery of the woods, lovely, deep and dark, but is aware of his duty towards his home, family and the nation, which distracts him to hasten towards.

The dark daughters are the girls trafficked round, sent across, sold and re-sold with the whereabouts unknown and traceless. Mahapatra has authored 27 books of poems, of which seven are in Oriya and the rest in English. In the poem, Temple, he carries the same age-old story of hunger. Sexuality is another bewitching and intriguing aspect of his poetry which is but the Lawrentine quality.

This is not the all, something has remained it. You cannot summarize what he has as the meaning is not and the words turning on, without anything to reveal, just the things in a flux.

And that sky there, claimed by inviolable authority, hanging on to its crutches of silence. A photographer of the rock-cut temples, he goes picturing the sculptures and figurines in love, war and devotion, telling of sociologically, dharma-artha-kama-and-moksha. He completed his M.

Rains and rites are the main things of his poetry. Yet time is not clairvoyant, and if it has the answer to our mahapatrz, proud in its possession of that potential which can change our natures, beating the visions of childhood out of us, the socialism and the love, until we remain awkwardly swung to the great north of honour. For me to deny [? The woes of a developing third-world nation, none, but those who live and suffer can know it well.

To read Jayanta jsyanta to come to the conclusion, nothing is what it seems to be and what it seems to be is nothing, as because the scenes and sites go shifting with the change in situation, idea, thought and reflection and the unconscious mind can always be seen at work.

My old father sitting uncertainly three feet away is the slow cloud against the sky: Sometimes the editors misjudge the entries and the same make a way when published elsewhere. Dawn at puri p.

His language is more powerful than being poetical and literary simply as because his is a language of science, that of physics and secondly he is a Christian too and thirdly he has studied in convent schools. If we discuss as a poet, he is but an imagist and poetry is image-making. Have you not heard it, dark is beautiful? Where do the retreating rays or beams go to? Light and darkness are the things of his poetry.

They are the beauty of the world to see and feel; art and artifacts; the aesthetic sense and value which also constitute life.
