Himalayan Voices provides admirers of Nepal and lovers of literature with their first glimpse of the vibrant literary scene in Nepal today.
An introduction to the two most developed genres of modern Nepali literature-poetry and the short story-this work profiles eleven of Nepal`s most distinguished poets and offers translations of more than eighty poems written from 1916 to 1986. Twenty of the most interesting and best-known examples of the Nepali short story are translated into English for the first time by Michael Hutt. All provide vivid descriptions of Life in twentieth-century Nepal.
This book should appeal not only to admires of Nepal, but to all readers with an interest in non-Western literatures. MICHAEL JAMES HUTT is a Lecturer in Nepali Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies in the University of London.
