"The dominant mode of Amiya Chakravarty's poetry is often deceptively casual--as if the poet were sharing an album of verbal snapshots, passing impressions jotted down wherever he happens to find himself, or a set of random extracts from an ongoing inward conversation. The individual poems, however, are highly crafted...."
"The translations are rendered in my own vernacular, American English, which is, for better or worse, becoming an increasingly global language. It has been an invitation I could not refuse, an incomparable adventure, to switch places and translate a poet who lived in the United States for many years, observing it through the lens of the Bengali language."(From the Preface)
