Heidelberg: Renowned Bengali poet Alokeranjan Dasgupta breathed his last at his residence in Heidelberg, Germany on Tuesday at the age of 87.

He had been suffering from various health problems for several years, reports Hindustan Times citing his wife Elizabeth.

Alokeranjan was known for his distinguished style of poetry that was hailed by many as a breath of fresh air in Bangla literature that was then heavily influenced by Tagore, especially in the 1950s.

Mourning the poet’s demise, Bengal’s chief minister took to her Twitter and wrote, “Saddened at the passing away of Sahitya Akademi award-winning poet and translator Alokeranjan Dasgupta. My condolences to his family and admirers.”

More than 20 books written by the poet have been published so far, and he has also written essays on poetic thought. Alokeranjan translated Bangla and Santali poems and plays into German and English.

In 1992, he received the Sahitya Akademi Award for his book ‘Moromi Karat’. He has also received the Rabindra Award and Ananda Award.
