Description


Inside one of Contemporary India's most Influential Poets

The twenty-four papers in Philosophical Musings for a Meaningful Life study the poetry collections Winged Reason (2010), Write Son, Write (2011), and Multicultural Symphony (2014), of Dr. K.V. Dominic and reveal his humanistic values and concept of universal brotherhood, his social criticism devoid of absurdity and obscurity, his profound concern for the marginalized sections of society, and his reverence for Nature. All the papers focus on the poet's anguish at the evils and the inhuman attitude prevalent in the society and necessitate harmony of existence. In the context of Indian English poetry, the papers find Dominic to be unique in his use of simple and plain language to address the vast canvass of human life and the neglected segment of human society. Further, the papers bring out how the universal appeal of Dominic lies in his ability to view the world as a sanctuary and acknowledge him as the promising voice of the present century for his belief in the interrelatedness of all lives that ascertains positive change in the individuals.

Dr. S. Kumaran, Editor, is working as an Assistant Professor in the Postgraduate & Research Department of English, Thiruvalluvar Government Arts College, Rasipuram. He is Associate Editor of two refereed international biannual journals, Writers Editors Critics (WEC) and International Journal on Multicultural Literature (IJML); and a Member of the Editorial Boards of various journals from India and abroad.

"This critical study on the poetry of Dr. K.V. Dominic deserves to be read closely for evaluation and to be on the shelf of every notable library. Philosophical Musings for a Meaningful Life will inspire scholars from the West to find rubies and diamonds in the Indian poetry of today."
--Dr. Stephen Gill, Poet Laureate of Ansted University

"K.V. Dominic's social consciousness is his chief forte. Not for a moment does he divert attention from the simple and innocent activities of ordinary human beings. From his lyrics originate feelings of eternal sympathy, peace, and fraternal unity."
--P.C.K. Prem, critic from Himachal Pradesh, India
