About the book

Anand Thakore’s poems written over the course of twenty years, prove themselves to be expertly crafted, deeply felt and profoundly musical verbal artefacts…There is something classical about his verse, his sonnets and villanelles, his rhyming quatrains and dramatic monologues, and yet they are never stiff; instead they marry Tennyson’s gift of cadence, Browning’s mastery of voice, Donne’s metaphysics, Kabir’s iconoclasm and Keats plunging into negative capability, all while retaining a wicked wit and signature style. His Selected Poems is a triumph.-Ravi Shankar, poet, translator and founding editor of Drunkenboat ,2016

The control of movement and tightness of language in these poems would be remarkable in any young poet anywhere -Dom Moraes, Mid-day, 1995

That Thakore is a Hindustani classical singer shows in his imagery and his complex patterns of sound, and in the texture of his verse. There is a song-like quality about his verse and I am reminded at times of Caroline songs and German Lieder.- Bruce King World Literature Today 2001
