I am delighted with my latest publication The Reciting Pens. This book is aimed to project Bengali poetics to the world’s literature, thus, a humble attempt of the union of Bengali poetry with the Western literature. Being the author of this book I find it apt to share a few of the salient features:
1. The Reciting Pens has captured three published Bengali poets from Calcutta, India. They are: Joya Mitra, Ranadeb Dasgupta, and Suddhasatya Ghosh. This is essentially a book based on the interviews I held with them, along with a few of their translated works.
2. The book carries a wonderful ‘foreword’ by the noted poet W. F. Lantry (Washington, DC). It has been a well-researched discourse, actually!
3. The classic cover has been done by the ace designer ( a Masters in Visual Arts) Partha Pratim Das, Calcutta, India.
4. Some beautiful illustrations have been included. They are done and donated by Pritam Ghosh, Assam, India.
5. The Reciting Pens has been jointly edited by Stephen L Wilson (Oregon, U.S.), and Kate Lantry (Washington, DC).
6. Publisher: Inner Child Press, ltd (U.S.A.)
