As he is pretty considerably attracted towards great English poets, he has translated some of the appealing poems in Tamil language. Longfellow’s ‘The Arrow and the Song’, T.Hood’s, ‘The Bridge of Sighs’, G.M.Hopin’s, ‘A Sonnet’ are well worth mentioning.

How he results in the poems? This concern was answered by Professor T.R.Kuppuswami.
Prof Kuppuswami narrates his expertise with Tiruloka Sitaram consequently:

“Poetry is at his beck and phone. In between dressing betel-leaves, correcting proofs, answering telephone simply call or talking with consumers and close friends, he scribbles a several strains. The poem builds up by fits and begins and it hardly ever gets a retouch. The moment I had the audacity to inquire of him no matter if the continuity was not spoiled by his breaks. ‘Nothing of that kind. I wield the pen each time I want and the poem can take styles.”

He also observes thus about his translation of poems into Tamil language:
“His genius has a different glowing facet. Translation, especially of poetry, is an unachievable position. Trustworthy rendering in a diverse language with all the spirit and elegance of the authentic intact is an Utopean dream. But he is an exception. To him it is a kid’s participate in.”

Mr T.N. Ramachandran who translated all the Tamil poems into English has accomplished a commendable job. His vast information obtained over a long time has assisted him to form this book.

It was Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe who explained, ” Every single working day we must hear at minimum one particular small song, browse 1 good poem, see one exquisite photograph, and, if probable, discuss a couple wise words and phrases.”

Right here is a book which provides you quite a few fantastic poems, if you want to take the suggest of Goethe.
