K.V. Dominic Criticism and Commentary: Essential Readings Companion (2 Copies)
Ramesh Chandra Mukhopadhyaya
Modern History Press
Inside this book you'll find Dr. Ramesh Chandra Mukhopadhyaya, one of the most erudite philosopher-critics of India, brilliantly evaluating his compatriot English poet K.V. Dominic. Among the contemporary English poets of India, Dr. K.V. Dominic has established an unchallengeable position of his own. Through his poetry collections Winged Reason, Write Son, Write, Multicultural Symphony, Contemporary Concerns and Beyond, and K.V. Dominic: Essential Readings and Study Guide, Dominic has beautifully portrayed themes of environmental, social, political, and humanitarian concerns.
Mukhopadhyaya, with his unique style, critically and philosophically studies not only Dominic's poetry, but also the poet himself as a person with his background of family, town, state, and country. Being a master of Indian as well as western philosophy, Mukhopadhyaya digs out the philosophic thoughts lying hidden in many of the poems. In addition, his depth in English and Sanskrit literature has enabled him to make comparisons of Dominic's poems to those of the legends.

We meet a couple who learns why you should never go back in time.

Praise for -100, now in development with Olu Odebunmi and Tolu Awosika, the screenwriters of Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins Ball!
