Voices of Resistance presents a selection of Telugu writings in English translation that explores articulations on humaneness, justice and social transformation from unlikely locations in time and genre. These poems, songs, stories, and extracts from novels and tracts—by 89 authors from the thirteenth century to the present—open a window into literary imaginations around questions that continue to preoccupy us today: egalitarianism, dignity, oppression, violence and resistance.

Voices of Resistance is part of the ‘Dakshinayan Indian Thought’ series of books curated by G.N. Devy, showcasing the plurality and diversity of Indian traditions.
