How does the author describe the incongruity of an English poet addressing the audience at Gemini Studios?


Answer – 

The Tamil audience at the Gemini studios was not knowledgeable enough to understand the thrills and travails of an English poet, of which the visitor poet-editor talked about, in his speech. The audience was dazed and silent because it failed to understand anything that the poet said. The Gemini studio made films for simple people, they did not have an opportunity to develop a taste in English poetry. The poet’s accent was not comprehendible. The poet-editor, was confused when he realized that his speech was not suitable for the audience.
