Description
No Hindu god is closer to the soul of poetry than Krishna, and though in the West the Bhagavad Gita is the best-known collection of Krishna poetry, in North India no poet is more widely associated with Krishna than Surdas. This book offers a selection of Surdas's poems that were known and sung in the 16th century—poems of war, poems to the great rivers, poems of wit and rage, and poems where the poet spills out his disappointments. Most important, though, are his poems of love, which adopt the voices of the women of Krishna's natal Braj country and evoke the power of being pulled into his irresistible orbit.

"The songs of Surdas are presented here with a radiant lyricism that gives the reader a direct encounter with the 'sun' of Hindi's poetic firmament. Each poem is given the space to stand alone as a fine lyrical moment, while being discreetly supported by [John] Hawley's perceptive annotations. An added title contextualizes each song, and an authoritative introduction helps the reader understand the complex background from which this sublime poetry has emerged."—Rupert Snell
