About this product
- DescriptionFree of the habitual lyricism of Indian writers, [Doshi's] work is austere and beautiful. Her refreshing muscularity gives her a distinct voice, both as a woman and an Indian. -- The London Times A work of a striking, emerging talent, who is prepared to take risks in pursuit of sensual, emotionally engaged and passionate poetry. --Judge's citation, Forward PrizeIn her second book of poetry--and her American debut--Tishani Doshi returns to the body as a central theme, while extending beyond the corporeal to challenge the more metaphysical borders of space and time. These new poems are powerful meditations born on the joineries of life and death, union and separation, memory and dream, where lovers speak to each other across the centuries and daughters wander into their mothers' childhoods. After the Rains After the rainsthe temple flowerslie like fallen soldiers--dirtied and bloodied pink.I want to get down bended knee, gather each broken petalto my chest.Out there--where the river meetsthe ocean's mouth, it would be calledthe kiss of life, a resuscitation.But herewith the world washed clean, it is thing but a trampling. Tishani Doshi is an award-winning poet, journalist, and dancer. She has written for newspapers such as the Guardian, International Herald Tribune, The Hindu Times, and the Financial Times. Her first vel, The Pleasure Seekers (Bloomsbury, 2010), has been translated into several languages. She lives in Chennai (Madras), India.
