Verticals of Life presents in English rendering of some of the finest poems of Sachi Raut-Roy, the eminent modem Oriya poet. The poet’s roots lie in the poetic traditions in vogue in the pre – Independence era and his poetry has been successful in arousing the passions of those for whom he wrote and lived. His employment of surrealistic imagination for exploring the dreamscape of the unconscious gives his poetry a distinctive newness.The essential spirit of his poetry however comes from his intense concern for the people among whom he has lived, especially the oppressed and the downtrodden.
Raut-Roy’s poems demonstrate that poetry is undoubtedly a part of the larger cultural and political milieu and is marked by the changes taking place within society. These translations done by competent poets including Jayanta Mahapatra successfully recapture the spirit of the originals in Oriya.
