MEENACHI Fourth Volume of New PoemsProduct no.: HP097
In this, her fourth volume of poems, tight-woven, visceral, surreal and intellectual, Rajandaye Ramkissooon-Chen has continued her legacy of probing research into the experiences, varied and sometimes painful, of immigrants from India to Trinidad. She delves into their customs, their religions and philosophy and pays veneration to ancestral pioneers. She also writes passionately about her parents and her people in Trinidad where she was born and where she practises her medical profession.
Her poems are crisp, the sentences short-limned. Imagery, metaphor and factual information are combined in a mastery meld of truth and perception.
