Book - 2008
Rate this:

How do Bengali women love in times of social transition and political upheaval? These poems look at how Bengali women tell their truths of the heart and mind through their struggles for equality, opportunity, and recognition in a changing society. The poems follow a subtle trajectory through the stages of love: first love; marriage; separation; aging and death; and ultimate supreme, universal love, of which romantic love is an imperfect reflection.

Carolyne Wright spent four years collecting and translating Bengali women's poetry. Wright is a poet herself, and her most recent collection is A Change of Maps .
