In Praise of Krishna: Songs from the Bengali

£12.99

Product description

In Praise of Krishna: Songs from the Bengali by Edward C. Dimock Jr. and Denise Levertov (Cape Editions) Pbk., 91 pp.

£12.99

The late, great Denise Levertov is still a name to conjure with in the world of American poetry, and while the distinguished scholarship of Professor Dimock backs her up, it is her skill that transmutes these Bengali love songs into poetry that works in English. Is it fanciful to hear the music of the biblical Song of Solomon from the Tanakh's Ketuvim in the cadences she employs throughout?

This is a superb little volume, and should be on any poetry lover's shelves, or indeed on the shelves of anyone interested in the poetry of love. (Good stuff to send one's beloved at any time.)
