When a poet turns to prose the result is sometimes astonishing, and The Collected Essays of A K Ramanujan--which is part Indology, part treatise on folklore, and part theory on translation--is such a book.' --Contemporary Poetry Review 'xtremely readable, humorous prose reminding you of how the past is usable not only for the creation of grand texts, but also in terms of the ever-changing moral and ethical configurations.' --The Statesman 'Poetry, translation and criticism are part of the same "intricate yet lucid world of words", and this is what makes these essays astonishingly radical, enduring and beautiful to read.' --Telegraph '[A]stounding range of essays which refine and consolidate our understanding of India's culture(s).' -- Indian Review of Books 'Ramanujan's four-decade itinerary comes across as a compelling and coveted model for the postcolonial academic. He seems to be everywhere enacting multiple roles: poet, scholar, critic, the orist, story-teller, folklorist, and translator.' -- Interventions 3: 2
