Ahila Sambamoorthy

My poems are Dravidian in tradition and draw largely on landscapes, philosophy, religion, and customs of South India. I believe that poetry should emulate music, or aspire towards the condition of music, and I thus like my poems to resound with the lyric voice of dream and imagination, such as is evoked in the blissful melodies of Franz Schubert. I love using rich, vibrant imagery, that is not always rooted in the 'real' world but in a transitional zone between the real and the wholly imaginary, a fantastic reality that is at the same time accessible and not accessible. And I deal with everyday human emotions such as longing, nostalgia, regret, sorrow, and happiness, nothing too otherwordly.

I teach English Literature at the National University of Malaysia. My strength lies in the field of post-colonial literatures written in English and music & literature.
