Issue Date: 1992

Citation: Sugunasiri, Suwanda H. J., "Sri Lankan Canadian Poets": the Bourgeoisie that Fled the Revolution. Canadian Literature, 132 Spring (1992): 60-79.
Abstract: This essay examines the validity of Arun Mukherjee's criticism of Michael Ondaatje's poetry, mainly Running in the Family, as well as the poetry of three other Sri Lankan poets, Rienzi Crusz, Asoka Weerasingha, and Krisanta Sri Bhagiyadatta. Disagreeing with Mukherjee's critique of these poets, this essay argues that Mukherjee herself has been trapped in the western dualistic worldview and her critique is out of balance.
