From his Autobiography - சுய சரிதையிலிருந்து

This whole world's a massive dream;
life of rebellious human insects
which eat, sleep, create ruckus and die
inside that, is a dream within a dream.


உலகெ லாமொர் பெருங்கன வஃதுளே
உண்டு றங்கி யிடர்செய்து செத்திடும்
கலக மானிடப் பூச்சிகள் வாழ்க்கையோர்
கனவி லுங்கன வாகும்

A dream within a dream - reminds me of Edgar alan poe's lines

"All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream. "


Was he inspired by Poe?

Chenthil,
Good job.

Arvind,
Yeah,it could have been an inspiration.
But i was surprised by the similarities in their lives.
-Both died young.Poe(40) and Bharathi(39).And they were mysterious deaths.
-Both lost their parents at an early age.
-Both were editors by profession.
-And most important of all,both were rebellious.

But i doubt whether Bharathi would categorize Poe as a poet considering his definition..
" கவிதை எழுதுபவன் கவியன்று. கவிதையே வாழ்க்கையாக உடையோன், வாழ்க்கையே கவிதையாகச் செய்தோன், அவனே கவி"
