JEJURI BY ARUN KOLATKAR PDF

His early Marathi poetry was radically experimental and displayed the influences of European avant-garde trends like surrealism , expressionism and Beat generation poetry. These poems are oblique, whimsical and at the same time dark, sinister, and exceedingly funny. Some of these characteristics can be seen in Jejuri and Kala Ghoda Poems in English, but his early Marathi poems are far more radical, dark and humorous than his English poems. His early Marathi poetry is far more audacious and takes greater liberties with language. However, in his later Marathi poetry, the poetic language is more accessible and less radical compared to earlier works. His later works Chirimiri, Bhijki Vahi and Droan are less introverted and less nightmarish.

His early Marathi poetry is far more audacious and takes great amounts of liberties with the language of poetry. However, in his later Marathi poetry, the poetic language is more accessible and less radical compared to earlier works.

His later works Chirimiri, Bhijki Vahi and Droan are less introverted and less nightmarish. They show a greater social awareness and his satire become more direct. It is a typical Kolatkar narrative poem like Droan, mixing myth, allegory, and contemporary history.

Although Kolatkar was never famous as a social commentator, his narrative poems tend to just that. Many poems in Bhijki Vahi contain plenty of comments on the contemporary history. The bewilderingly heterogeneous megapolis is envisioned in various oblique and whimsical perspectives of an underdog.

The remarkable maturity of poetic vision embodied in the Kala Ghoda Poems makes it something of a milestone in Indian poetry in English.

One reason is that Jejuri was not published outside of India until ; to our detriment, not many people outside of India are familiar with his work.
