From Mary Ellis Gibson:

Indian Angles
English Verse in Colonial India from Jones to Tagore
“Meticulously resuscitating a mostly illegible and invisible archive, Gibson’s comprehensive study of English-language poetry written in and about India should dramatically transform the postcolonial canon. Emphasizing the perspectival as well as the identitarian, Indian Angles heralds a new recognition of subcontinental verse with polyglot resonances and cosmopolitan reach.”
—Srinivas Aravamudan, author of Guru English: South Asian Religion in a Cosmopolitan Language
Anglophone Poetry in Colonial India, 1780-1913: A Critical Anthology

Anglophone Poetry in Colonial India, 1780-1913, makes accessible for the first time the entire range of poems written in English on the subcontinent from their beginnings in 1780 to the watershed moment in 1913 when Rabindranath Tagore won the Nobel Prize in Literature.
