TitleI, Lalla : the poems of Lal Ded / translated from the Kashmiri with an introduction and notes by Ranjit Hoskote
ImprintHaryana : Penguin Books, 2013
Descript lxxvii, 246 pages ; 21 cm


The poems of the fourteenth-century Kashmiri mystic Lal Ded, popularly known as Lalla, strike us like brief and blinding bursts of light. Emotionally rich yet philosophically precise, sumptuously enigmatic yet crisply structured, these poems are as sensuously evocative as they are charged with an ecstatic devotion. Stripping awa a century of Victorian-inflected translations and paraphrases, and restoring the jagged colloquial power of Lalla's voice, in Ranjit Hoskote's new translation these poems are glorious manifestos of illumination.-- Bak cover
