Indian Love Poems by Meena Alexander
Book DescriptionAccording to the Kama Sutra, the erotic handbook written two thousand years ago, when the wheel of ecstasy is in motion "there is no textbook at all, and no order." Indian Love Poems is a unique gathering of poems from across more than two and a half millennia that attempts to catalog the disordered ecstasies of love, ranging from the Kama Sutra and earlier works up to present-day India and the poets of the Indian diaspora. Emerging from many Indian cultures and eras, the poems collected here reflect a variety of erotic and spiritual passions, and celebrate the powerful role of desire-both male and female-in the intricate dance of existence. From the twelfth-century female poet Mahadeviyakka to the twentieth-century Nobel Prize winner Rabindranath Tagore to such contemporary poets as Kamala Das and Vikram Seth, this glittering tapestry of lyric voices beautifully and sensually evokes the transfiguring force of love.

"These writings on war by Middle Eastern and South Asian women are passionate, bitter, and deeply attached to place and circumstance. They should be part of our essential reading. At the tail end of this century, they help to remap a vivid, splintering world".--Meena Alexander, author of "Fault Lines". Lightning Print On Demand Title
