The book is a collection of essays written over two decades but with consistency of style, concern and argument. It's divided into two parts: The first, "The Bhakti Poet Saint: Economies of Word and Life" ranges over the literature of Bhakti as a whole. The second part is organized around individual poets: Mira, Sur, and Kabir. Connections between the three poets is established meticulously and convincingly.

HAWLEY, JOHN STRATTONReview:
this volume...makes a valuable contribution to the field in its sharp focus on disentangling sensitive but historically accurate appreciation of these traditions from their romantic and essentialized perceptions. The approach stressed by Hawley is valuable in the broader study of 'Hinduism' as well. Neelima Shukla-Bhatt, International Journal of Hindu Studies
