Originally published in 1940, The Blue Grove is a study of the poetry of the Uraons.

This unique consideration of the poetry and folk song of the Uraons presents a wide range of poems organised by theme, including dance poems, cultivation poems, and marriage poems. It also includes examples of a Uraon marriage sermon, a Uraon farewell address, and Uraon riddles. The poems are preceded by a detailed analysis of Uraon marriages and dancing, providing important contextual information.

The Blue Grove will appeal to anyone with an interest in the rich history of Uraon folk songs, poetry, and dance.
