Eminent scholar George L. Hart and gifted poet Hank Heifetz have transcreated for English readers the ancient Tamil classic Purananuru, a compilation of poems composed about two thousand years ago by more than a hundred and fifty poets... While accurately capturing the quintessential beauty of poetic Tamil, the authors successfully evoke an authentic aura of the culture, geography, glimpses of history, and everyday life of the ancient Tamils.(Kokila Ravi Contemporary South Asia November 2005)
This unique translation... is undoubtedly George L. Hart and Hank Heifet'z most successful collaboration to date.(Martha Ann Selby Journal of Asian Studies )
This translation of the Purananuru by a distinguished Tamil scholar and a noted poet is unlikely to be rivaled for a long time to come. It is a remarkable achievement, at once eloquent and immensely moving, and deserving of unstinting praise.(R. Parthasarathy, translator of The Tale of an Anklet )
