The Cartographer



Featured poets: Mohan Rana

Featured translators: Lucy Rosenstein, Bernard O’Donoghue

Mohan Rana’s intricate metaphysical poems are subtle, like water they define through transparency. His poems undertake the deceptively simple process of understanding things as they are, in their ordinary brilliance. This selection of profound, contemplative verse – so often concerned with memory and time – is an excellent introduction to one of Hindi poetry’s most enthralling voices, and includes an afterword by Alison Brackenbury.

The Poetry Translation Centre’s World Poet Series showcases the most exciting living poets from Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America, in beautiful pocket-sized bilingual editions.

"What gives Rana’s poetry its magnetic quality is that, despite its philosophical profundity, his work is vividly accessible."
-Lucy Rosenstein
