T Wignesan's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: K373 And K374 Of The Thirukkural Translated With Commentary by T (no first name) Wignesan (6/3/2017 11:49:00 AM)

    It doesn't appear to me that you have read and understood what I have to say in the accompanying remarks to the couplets, for your statement and declaration border on the illogical. If what you mean by informative is supposed to be a critique of the Thirukkural as a whole, think again. There are epics in Tamil, too, for your information. T. Wignesan

  • POEM: Where Are We Going by Oodgeroo Noonuccal (11/3/2016 6:33:00 AM)

    Your poem, a very moving elegy on the fate of your peoples does not say more than it has to say, for you do not look for historical excuses to embellish deeply felt feelings to justify your plight. Your first and last lines establish the link of your ancestors and their lost or pilfered traditions and sacred soil to the present heritage with the settlers blood tussling in your veins: they and now we. You have said it all in as simple a way as it takes to say goodbye, but few can forget the look in your eyes as they part watching desecration of your holy grounds and hence the shadows that flit and shorten around the dying embers. Thank you for reminding us all of our lack of concern for those who disappear into the night - forsaken and forgotten! T. Wignesan P.S. I'll translate it into some language I know, however.

  • POEM: Anyone For Humiliation by T (no first name) Wignesan (4/30/2016 5:50:00 AM)

    Top of the morning to you, Tom! Of course, I'm delighted the piece stirs you well enough to put voice to barren words on a page (and here I must lament): unfortunately PoemHunter deranges the structure (check, if you will, PoetrySoup) . Many warm thanks. No, I'm not of the fairer sex genre - far from it. Not that I would not have liked to stake a claim as far as looks go… Thanks very much again for taking time out to comment. Every good wish. Wignesan (I have so much to do all day, I always wonder how others find the time to devote to my work.)
