Description

First published in 1917, “The Broken Wing - Songs of Love, Death & Destiny – 1915-1916” is collection of beautiful poetry by Indian poet and activist Sarojini Naidu. A wonderful collection not to be missed by fans and collectors of classic Indic poetry. Contents include: “The Broken Wing Songs of Life and Death”, “Memorial Verses”, “The Following Year”, “The Peacock-lute Songs for Music”, and “The Temple, A Pilgrimage of Love”.
Naidu (1879–1949) was an Indian political activist and poet. She was a staunch proponent of women's emancipation, civil rights, and anti-imperialistic ideas, playing an important role in India's struggle for independence from colonial rule. Her work as a poet includes both children's poems and others with more mature themes including patriotism, romance, and tragedy, earning her the sobriquet “Nightingale of India”. Her most famous work is "In the Bazaars of Hyderabad" (1912), which remains widely read to this day. Other notable works by this author include: “The Bird of Time: Songs of Life, Death & the Spring” (1912) and “Muhammad Jinnah: An Ambassador of Unity” (1919). This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with an introductory chapter chapter from 'Studies of Contemporary Poets' by Mary C. Sturgeon.
