    About the Book

    Gabor Lanczkor’s poems represent a uniquely unfledged, intriguing way of approaching artistic traditions and geographies; contemporary and ancient, human and non-human. The Hungarian poet’s themes range from psychedelic prosody of love and darkling austerity of re-imagined Greek myths to the wildly unconventional literary re-creation of intimate vision of the Indo-Hungarian painter Amrita Sher-Gil and the Spanish Francisco Goya’s Black Paintings. American poet and essayist Jeremy Faro and prominent Indian translators and poets Rita Malhotra, Terry Verma and Ashwani Kumar have collaborated on this English anthology of Lanczkor’s poems.
