Poetry is not about nature but about Homer. This means that poetry is not about original talent but about furthering a tradition. What tradition does an Indian English poet follow? Answering this question by honouring poets who have gone before him, Hoshang Merchant becomes a Poet’s Poet.


Hoshang Merchant is a poet of thirty years standing with twenty-five books of poetry. His papers are archived at Koch Library, Cornell University. He taught poetry and creative writing at University of Hyderabad for twenty-eight years. He was awarded the Rainbow Warrior Award for his life work in 2019.
