Book Description

This collection brings together for the first time poetry from three strikingly different phases of Joy Goswami's formidable literary career - Ashes burnt by the sun (Surjo-Pora Chhai 1999) Shiva my high (Moutat Moheshwar 2005) and Merely a Spurt of Time (Du Dondo Phowara Matro 2011). Selected and translated by Sampurna Chatterji this book which includes an in-depth interview with the poet introduces the English reader to the world of a poet whose language is powerful inventive and often enigmatic. While some poems invoke a landscape that is 'mysterious anguished and visionary' in others Joy Goswami achieves mischief and melancholy with the deftest of strokes.
