Grace and Mercy in Her Wild Hair by Ramprasad Sen

Book Description

These poems written in the eighteenth-century in Bengal, express his passionate devotion for the praise of the Great Mother Goddess -- primarily in her manifestation as Kali, the dark goddess, guardian of the cycles of birth and death. His work emerges from s bhakti-or devotional-tradition, which revolted against the Brahman -- dominated Hindu orthodoxy of the time. These poems traverse a spectrum of moods -- from the wild despair of an abandoned child to the intoxicated hilarity of a man drunk with the Goddess's love.
