“Poem Continuous is a wonderful introduction to the lush world of Bengali poetry. With many translations I always have the distinct feeling that I’m reading a translation. I can see, and feel, the hesitancy and the uncertainty. What has the translator left out, perhaps for expediency, which I am now missing? Not so here! This is a seamless, and highly readable, English translation of some very accomplished Bengali poetry. Experienced lovers of poetry will immediately recognize the significance and nuances of the work. Those new to Bengali poetry are in for a real treat! I would be hard-pressed to name another book of contemporary Bengali poetry quite as good as this one,” writes Don Martin. The expanded second edition of Poem Continuous was formally launched in Calcutta on September 28, 2015 by eminent dramatist and honorable Tourism minister, Government of West Bengal, BratyaBasu.
