The Stinking Rose

Bhatt, Sujata

The Stinking Rose - Manchester; Carcanet; 1995 - 128 Pages; Paperback

The stinking rose is one name for garlic. This collection includes a sequence of 25 poems which explore the mythologies and the practical aspects of garlic. Divided into five parts, the book is also haunted by places - Vancouver Island, the poet's native India, and Europe. A dialogue between new worlds and old intensifies in a series of "bilingual" poems which bring Gujarati and English together.
