About this Item

Ram Proshad (c.1720-1781)` is a much-loved, much-sung mystic poet of Bengal, whose violently intimate relationship with his goddess, the awesome Kali, inspired spiritual love poetry which lives and breathes on the skin. Nirode Mazumdar (1916-1982), a painter whose own quest led him deep into the myths and values of his heritage, responded with visuals evoked by his passionate feeling for these fervid lyrics. A bilingual Bengali-French edition emerged, with the Bengali poetry and a French translation by the artist and his wife Marguerite, alongside the artist`s drawings and paintings. Years later scholar-translator-critic Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, whose own emotional involvement with Ram Proshad`s poetry has its roots in her Calcutta childhood, launched on a translation into English. Now, this unusual collaboration across space and time is reborn as a rich volume of poetry and illuminations, which contains a facsimile version of the original, poetry by Ram Proshad, the French translation by Nirode and Marguerite Mazumdar, the English translation by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, and visuals by Nirode Mazumdar.
