Exile Songs and other Poems is a new edition of the early writings of Amit Mediratta, artist and philosopher, and is his second title produced under the Amit Mediratta Publications imprint. The collection opens with a series of extracts from letters originally addressed to a deceased friend and mentor, as part of a number of correspondences following the latter's death. They comprise nostalgic reflections on the poet's adolescence, and a subsequent transition to adulthood that engages with a probing, experimental search for value and purpose. Written in a style that is simultaneously romantic, satirical and grotesque, Mediratta's writings dissolve the moral constraints of language to produce works that document an autobiographical account of a wanderer through existence. The result is a timeless collection that echoes - and furthers - the preoccupations of writers such as Swift, Blake, Nietzsche and Hesse.
