The Poetry of Amazement: Citra Kavya

The poets of the Indian subcontinent have practised-for thousands of years-the art of ingenious verse. Citra Kavya (or pictorial poetry) is a fiendishly difficult form in which a poem reveals hidden pictorial figures or clusters of simultaneous meaning. These verses are designed to evoke reactions of amazement in the reader, and awe at the technical dexterity of the poet.

Taking us on this marvelous journey through Citra Kavya is the award-winning novelist Vikram Chandra, himself described by Nicola Davis in the Observer as a linguistic gazelle. Chandra's talk concentrates on examples in the ancient classical language of Sanskrit, but points at the limitless possibilities of language itself.

This event is in partnership with UBC Asian Studies as part of the World Sanskrit Conference and Indian Summer Festival with support from UBC Faculty of Arts and SSHRC.
