Description About the author
 
Resistance in Exile: A Study of Tibetan Poetry in English is a pioneering work on Tibetan poetry in English. Tibet may perhaps be the last existing colony in the World. They are a set of people who still believe in an ancient theocratic world, but they have neither a country nor identity not even existence as a nation. Scattered all over the World as refugees, they form a world that does not exist for the modern man. The Tibetan refugees have started to voice their protests. This work is an analysis of their protests - of how poetry can be a resistance in exile; a peaceful resistance. In a world torn between violent attacks by extremists and often governments themselves; this study is the record of three generations of poets and how a people are able to protect their essential "Tibetanness" and highlight their lost culture.
