Book Review - Essential Readings and Study Guide: Poems about Social Justice, Women's Rights, and the Environment by KV Dominic

Book Review
Essential Readings and Study Guide: Poems about Social Justice, Women's Rights, and the Environment by KV Dominic

Book Information
K. V. Dominic Essential Readings gathers for the first time the three most important works of poetry from this shining new light of contemporary Indian verse in English: Winged ReasonWrite Son, Write and Multicultural Symphony. A fourth collection of 22 previously unpublished poems round out a complete look at the first 12 years of Dominic’s prolific and profound verse. Each poem includes unique Study Guide questions suitable for South Asian studies curricula.

Written in free verse, each of his poems makes the reader contemplate on intellectual, philosophical, spiritual, political, and social issues of the present world. Themes range from multiculturalism, environmental issues, social mafia, caste-ism, exploitation of women and children, poverty, and corruption to purely introspective matters. From the observation of neighborhood life to international events, and everyday forgotten tragedies of India, nothing escapes the grasp of Dominic’s keen sense of the fragility of life and morality in the modern world.

Praise for the verse of K. V. Dominic
"K. V. Dominic is one of the most vibrant Indian English poets whose intense passion for the burning social and national ailments makes him a disciple of Ezekielean School of poetry. His poetic passion for the natural beauty keeps him besides the Romanticists."
-- Dr. A. K. Choudhary, English poet, critic and editor, Professor of English, Assam, India

"K. V. Dominic’s poems are important additions to the growing global movement to bring about positive change and equality for all individuals. The injustices he confronts in his poems are the arrows and thorns that pierce his heart every day and the gushing blood that runs through his pen to paper."
-- Rob Harle, poet and critic, Nimbin, Australia

"K. V. Dominic is a poet of the suffering masses and oppressed sections of the society. He tries to dissect corruption at all levels, political or religious, social or academic and presents it in its true colours with all the ugliness and monstrous greed."
--Prof. T. V. Reddy, reputed English poet, writer and critic, Emeritus Professor of English from Andhra Pradesh, India

Our Book Review
The authors topics and themes he used for his poetry had me gripped from the first to the last page. The useful question's at the end of each one, checking for understanding, is an additional bonus.

As for any poet the subject matter is key, the author writes from his heart and is not afraid to challenge and test the reader with his beliefs. No situation or emotion is left uncovered, from birth to death and love to hate, politics and religion and the one thing that touches everyones heart our love for our pets. 


When you read each individual poem it will strike a chord and make you really challenge your own morals. The honesty and integrity of the writer shines through. 

Scholars will love the scripts as it will lead to endless discussions over their interpretation of the words and meanings.
