Gagan Gill is one of the most respected poets writing in Hindi today. Her poems give voice to the unheard – whether of a foetus or a bride, the abused earth or the animals upon it. This selection, featuring work from each of her five collections, demonstrates the musical and visual originality of her verse, which is constantly finding new expressive possibilities in simple everyday language. Includes an afterword by Helen Charman.
The Poetry Translation Centre’s World Poet Series showcases the most exciting living poets from Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America.
"[Gagan Gill] combines stark images with rare expressiveness: expressiveness composed of silences, gaps, absences, disruptions, of pulsational pressure which goes beyond language."
