POEM OF THE DAY: FAUST

"which is why you take
your elders with you
or else lose your way"

This poem from our Autumn Choice Sandeep Parmar's new collection Faust (published by Shearsman Books) about her Indian grandparents' turbulent partition journey really resonates today on the 75th Anniversary of Partition.

Faust explores identity, belonging, Indian agriculture, trauma and migration to startling effect. A powerful reminder of this traumatic time and its ongoing aftermaths. This photograph was taken in West Bengal by Dibakar Roy and seemed to fit the themes so eloquently. The sense of sudden splitting, the new pathways forged and the long shadows cast.
