About the book


“This is not merely an academic exercise in comparative literature, but relates the works of two literary giants to the concerns of contemplating life.”
Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India


Comparing Titans is a significant academic work comparing two iconic figures in world literature - Thiruvalluvar and Shakespeare.
Separated by a span of some 1500 years, they operate in different genres and in very different cultural milieus. But universal humanism and innate sensitivity bring them together and make them vibrantly contemporary. Irai Anbu has drawn many strands of comparison and woven them into a beautiful tapestry. This book is marked by depth of scholarship and perceptive insights.

About the Author:

Dr. V. Irai Anbu (b. 1963) is an atypical member of the Indian Administrative Service. He has constantly been on the guard against getting fettered by the bureaucratic routine or an obsession with power. With innate sensitivity, creative impulse and spiritual orientation, he has converted his life into a voyage of discovery. This voyage touches many shores - literary expression, perceptive seeking and purposeful sharing. This book is one such manifestation.
