Devarakonda Balagangadhara Tilak (21 August 1921 – 1966) was an influential Telugu poet, novelist and short story writer.

Background[edit]

Literary contributions and recognition[edit]

Devarakonda Balagangadhara Tilak is best known for his posthumous collection of poems Amrutham Kurisina ratri, ("The Night When Nectar Rained")[1] published in 1969.[2] This book won the Andhra Pradesh state Sahitaya Akademy Award and Central Government Sahitaya Akademy Award in 1970. The volume has been called a "milestone in modern Telugu" by Sisir Kumar Das, who added, "But for him, 'verse libre' or 'prose poetry' could not have gained so much of popularity."[1]

His collection of short stories include Sundari-SubbaRavu, Vuri Chivara Illu and Tilak Kadhalu. His stories were influenced by Maxim Gorky and Rabindranath Tagore[1]
