This construction of an anthology on a temporal basis is a significant issue since it brings into question the historical appellation of time into ancient, medieval and modern. In the Assamese context, it is very difficult to define a modern period of poetry. Most importantly, Hem Barua considers the publication of the Bible in Assamese prose in the year as the beginning point of modern Assamese literature. According to Neog, this duo for the first time carried on the task of seeking inspiration from Western Literature in an organized manner.

This construction of an anthology on a temporal basis is a significant issue since it brings into question the historical appellation of time into ancient, medieval and modern. Ramanath Bhattacharya makes a two-part division assamse his introduction. Also, Neog and Barua glosses over the simultaneous application of the British governmental policies and the proselytizing kovita undertaken by the American Baptist Missionaries.
At this point, it is important to remember the fact that the translation of the Bible into vernacular languages was the first thing that the missionaries did in almost all the other parts of the country. The English translation Modern Assamese Poetry: Moffat Mills in The Hem Barua anthology forms a part of a series of poetry-collection devoted to the task of anthologizing Asssamese poetry across the different Indian literatures.
They gave it a due share of justice and recognition in all their institutions.
Concern is shown over the selection of the poets whose poems are supposed to appear in any given anthology. His analysis gains strength by the fact that he provides a decade by decade analysis of the entire time period. Neog claims that Assamese poetry in the contemporary era embodies similar characteristics. He tries to differentiate the newly-inherited sense of Romantic aestheticism from that of indigenous Vaishnavism by stressing on the fact that while Sankaradeva, in his attempt kobitaa create the ambience for the divine play of the Lord had infused one or two bold brush strokes of natural scenery, the new wave of Assamese Romanticism took up nature as its prominent theme.

Is Phukan following the Western pattern as koblta the historical trajectory is concerned? Often the anthology is constructed on the basis of a historical time period say, the modern era or even a given century. But such an attempt would enable one to tab the flow of events.
At this point, assamee would be important to go back to the introduction written by Neog and Barua. He perceives the effort of the said journal and the subsequent endeavors undertaken by Hemchandra Goswami to rejuvenate the Assamese language as the prelude to the real turning- point 5 Page xv, Introduction, Barua Hem ed.

Lyricism is considered to be an important development in modern Kobkta poetry. With assamwse questions, the issues of temporal demarcation and its contingency in relation to the trajectory of historical occurrences could be problematized so as to enable a better understanding of the politics implicit in the formulation of anthologies. At this point, it would be worthwhile to take up the third anthology of Assamese poetry edited by Nilomani Phukan.
Remember me on this computer. He characterizes modern poetry as being reflective of the solitude, sorrowfulness, disgust, loneliness and fragmentariness which are in turn the effects of the so-called civilized social system.
But what remains problematic is the title of the entire anthology and the subsequent division of time into Romantic and Modern. It is important to note that Bhattacharya is here not referring to any specific civilization or poetic tradition.
While Barua and Neog unhesitatingly termed the entire time period as modern thereby positing Romantic aestheticism as one of the prime characteristic of modern Assamese poetry, Phukan seems to make a precise distinction in terms of the collective consciousness of the prevailing era. The first of the two Assamese anthologies is edited by Maheshwar Neog entitled Sanchayan and published for the first time in the year and the second one is by Nilomani Phukan entitled Kuri Xatikar Axamiya Kabita and published in And he also tries to see the influence of Bengali poets such as Hemchandra Bandhopadhyaya upon one or two Assamese poets and of Rabindranath Tagore upon the poetry of Ratnakanta Borkakoti.
The fourth one is in Bengali entitled Adhunik Axamiya Kabita, edited by Ramanath Bhatacharya and published in the year So, from this Neogian perspective, an important question emerges: It is so because this temporal demarcation is strictly region- specific and is highly contingent upon the trajectory of historical events in that region.
