Arvind krishna mehrotra translating the indian past the poets experience

Arvind Krishna Mehrotra (born 1947) is a noted Indian poet, anthologist, literary critic and translator. Mehrotra is widely recognized for extending the Indian English language poetry tradition, established by figures such as A.K. Ramanujan, Nissim Ezekiel, Dom Moraes and Arun Kolatkar. Mehrotra's poetry contained in collections such as Middle Earth, Nine enclosures and The transfiguring places are considered significant contributions to Indian English poetry, and are noted for their innovative exploration of modern concerns and ways of representation. Mehrotra's work has been wide ranging, including both traditional forms and unconventional techniques. Mehrotra's occasional literary experimentation, emphasizing a variety of perspectives, has made his work a part of modern Indian English poet. His full name is Arvind krishanana mehritra
