- Gemma Gorga (author)
- 248 p.
Gemma Gorga had previously translated the English-speaking Indian poet Dilip Chitre (Vint esmorzars cap a la mort [Twenty Breakfasts Towards Death], 2012) and that encouraged her to apply for a Sanskriti Foundation scholarship in order to translate contemporary Indian poets. During her residency, working on the translation, India’s idiosyncratic mood seeped into her and germinated the seed of this intimate, honest and beautiful book in which anyone who has been to India will see themself reflected; and those who haven’t been there yet will certainly enjoy a great approach to the heterodox character of Indian thinking. Furthermore, the poems translated by Gemma will bring the readers closer to a new poetry they will find innovative, fresh and fascinating.
