Treasure Island

Bijay Kant Dubey


T.V.Reddy’s Poetry


In When Grief Rains, the poet in a Jane Austenian way
Takes to human grief, pain and sadness,
A look at the smaller poems of the thinner collection
Shows grief distilling as drops of despair and gloomy sadness,
Short of the Hardyian concept of the bleak hope and harsh winter
As shown in The Darkling Thrush poem,
Man a puppet into the hands of Destiny,
Happiness but an episode in man’s life.

An oldie in verse, taking to the late nineties
In the aftermath of Romanticism and the herald of Victorianism,
His is a poetry of the twilight time,
He likes to derive and draw from
Wordsworth, Shelley, Tennyson and even Ezekiel,
A poet into the footsteps of Oliver Goldsmith and William Cowper
As far as his love of the country is concerned.
