Rooms Are Never Finished: Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As in his previous collection, Country Without a Post Office, Agha Shahid Ali excavates the devastation wrought upon Kashmir, his childhood home. But here he reveals a more personal devastation: his mother's death and the journey with her body back to Kashmir. Binding these poems is a virtuosic use of both given and open forms ? canzones, sonnets, ghazals, terza rima, prose poems, and Sapphics. To these demanding forms, Ali brings a conversational ease that belies his virtuosity. The result is a poetry of stunning inventiveness, infused with passion and grief.
