MEET RANJIT HOSKOTE: PBS SUMMER RECOMMENDATION
Posted on June 14 2020
We're delighted that The Atlas of Lost Beliefs has been chosen by our PBS Selectors Sandeep Parmar and Andrew McMillan as a Summer Recommendation. Ranjit Hoskote belongs to the younger generation of Indian poets who began to publish their work during the early 1990s. He is the author of six collections including Zones of Assault, The Cartographer's Apprentice, The Sleepwalker's Archive, Vanishing Acts: New & Selected Poems 1985-2005 and Central Time. Hoskote is widely believed to have extended the Anglophone Indian poetry tradition established by Dom Moraes and others through major new works of poetry. Commenting on Hoskote's poetry on the Poetry International website, the poet and editor Arundhathi Subramaniam observed: "His writing has revealed a consistent and exceptional brilliance in its treatment of image. Hoskote's metaphors are finely wrought, luminous and sensuous, combining an artisanal virtuosity with passion, turning each poem into a many-angled, multifaced experience."
