An interesting article about political poetry here:
WAR IN GAZA: The stuff that poems are made on.
KEKI DARUWALLA (from The Hindu)
Poetry has more than a significant role in the reconciliation of inner worlds with the complexities of the outer.
Without hangman and scaffold
A poet cannot exist in the world
How does poetry react to something terrible? To Sabra or Shatila, those refugee camps in West Beirut where the Palestinians were mowed down by the right wing Phalangists (the Qataib) in September 1982, or Ghaza today, or our own horrendous 26/11in Mumbai?
