Modern Poetry

PG and Research Department of English in association with Malayalam department organized a session on Modern Poetry of T.S. Eliot: A Comparative Analysis with Malayalam poetic movements, with Dr. Hikmathullah as the resource person on the 6th of March, 2024.

With First year MA students as the audience, the session provided a thorough grounding to the concept of ‘wasteland’ and highlighted the powerful symbols used by poets of this movement.

Citing the examples of eminent Malayalam poets like Kumaranaasaan, Kuttippurathu Kesavannair, and Balachandran Chullikkadu, Dr. Hikmathullah beautifully delineated how modernism and modernity could be read and understood through poetry.
