- by Khademul Islam    

This book is a striking collection of translated poems from Bangladesh and West Bengal in India. They demonstrate the astonishing diversity and range of Bengali poets, as well as the enduring affinities, across a political and geographical divide, inherent in a common mother tongue and cultural heritage. The inclusion of the artwork that accompanied their original publication makes for a vivid and unique reading experience of the poems.
