Life of a city in all its shades: An analysis of Vihang A. Naik's Poetry

Rakesh Kumar


Vihang A. Naik’s Poetic collection Poetry Manifesto is a seminal work in modern Indian poetry in English. In his poetry Vihang A. Naik shows his utter disgust for city life, and urban angst is very conspicuous element in his poetry. He seems to be disillusioned with city life and finds solace in the emotional sensibility of the heart which celebrates love as an indistinguishable part of human life. Philosophically his dormant urban angst generally finds a very vehement expression in his alter ego. This paper explores the underlying anger and disgust towards urban life in Vihang A Naik’s Poetry Manifesto.
