About this title

Synopsis:

Poetry. South Asia Studies. Translated from the Punjabi by Amritjit Singh and Judy Ray. "The poems of Rampuri are wise and memorable—whether he is speaking to us about the timeless tension between reason and age, love, the experience of illusion, life under foreign skies, political corruption or the senselessness of war.... The important experiences of life are here in THE CIRCLE OF ILLUSION, rendered with the subtlety, beauty, and sometimes sadness of an expansive spirit that has traversed the East, the West, and many chambers of the human heart"—Charles Johnson.
