Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of The Social, Cultural and Spiritual Dimensions of Modern Indian Poetry in English, edited by Vijay Kumar Roy.

This volume brings together research papers on the poetry of modern Indian poets, particularly those whose poetry is less explored. It is well known that post-Independence India has produced many brilliant writers whose writings have their own importance in the field of Indian English literature. These writers have brought new themes and new styles of writing that have enriched Indian English literature to a greater extent. The book explores the social, cultural and spiritual dimensions of these emerging poets, and will prove useful to students, teachers and all those interested in Indian English poetry for studies and research purposes.
