This volume brings together all the poems Kaiser Haq has written since the publication of Published in the Streets of Dhaka: Collected Poems. They offer a masterly treatment of the everyday world of social and political problems as well as the perennial themes of literature. Always rich in emotional content and intellectual implications, Haq’s poetry is also zany, quirky, and ironic. His fine ear for poetic cadence and harp eye for the telling image ensure that his work is of universal appeal even when he deals with his native land and its peculiar problems.
