In his second collection of poems, Vikram Seth reflects on three cultures he knows well: India, California and China. The poet Donald Davie writes: Vikram Seth s poems should have an impact far beyond much noisier pieces; for when did we last see a volume in which the poet s eye is on what is objectively before him, rather than on the intricacies of his own sensibility?
