Full of striking imagery ... shows what a contemporary poet can do with a traditional form. The Book Review
The poems are passionate, sensuous and intelligent, full of energy and enterprise. They hold their dramatic shapes with grace and establish her as a poet to read and return to time and again. George Szirtes, T.S. Eliot Memorial Poetry Prize Winner, 2004
This collection of verse by one of India s most talented poets is exceptional for its haunting lyrical quality as well as for its engagement with mythic and historical forms from the Indian subcontinent. Not Springtime Yet continues Priya s quest for the perfect pitch, the idea just beyond the grasp, the thought buried in the debris of love and death. She re-imagines for us old tales of valour and love with the same ease and restless energy with which she trawls through contemporary images of war and loneliness. The result is a series of recognitions and revivals of form, tone and linguistic play.
