A one-of-a-kind collection of work by one of India's best contemporary poets. Gathering the work of a lifetime, spanning four books of poetry, and including thirty-four new poems, this is the first comprehensive collection of the work of one of India's most influential English language poets to be published in the United States and the United Kingdom. Arvind Krishna Mehrotra's poetry has long been known for its mixing of the commonplace and the strange, the autobiographical and the fabulous, in which the insignificant details of everyday life-whether contemporary or historical-bring larger patterns into focus. Mehrotra's celebrated translations from Indian languages (Prakrit, Hindi, Gujarati, Bengali) take up a third of Collected Poems . Selections from The Absent Traveller and Songs of Kabir are followed by those of Nirala, Vinod Kumar Shukla, Mangalesh Dabral, Pavankumar Jain and Shakti Chattopadhyay. Together they tell the story of Indian poetry over two millennia."
