Description

Telugu: Ismail

English: D. Kesava Rao


“the light perfume
of lengthening shadows
below her cheeks and ears;
the smell
of the cascading rain
in the seaside casuarinas grove
in her hair.

Her body has the secret scent
of the dens
the sun-lion sleeps in
in the nights;
her eyes have the blue fragrance
of the sky, gradually
filling with stars…..”

“Ismail's voice is quiet and urbane, his poems are spare and brief, rarely lapsing into abstractions.”

“Lack of restraint and losing control over feeling, found in many Western poets, are remarkably absent in his poems. Researchers should also note seriously the sense of humour found in some of his poems. The questions he raised in critical practice need very close attention. We find such discrimination in poetic diction in Japanese poets like Basho. The skill of the East European poet like Holan who could unpretentiously transform every experience of life into poetry, the dexterity of Cavafy who could carve poems into memorable works of art, the transparency of expression found in Borges impressively commingle in him.”
