The poems are passionate, sensuous and intelligent, full of energy and enterprise. They hold their dramatic shapes with grace and establish her as a poet to read and return to time and again.' ? George Szirtes, T.S. Eliot Memorial Poetry Prize Winner, 2004 '?a highly competent writer aware of form, of poetic conventions in many different language traditions, with a feeling for cadence, lineation, image, compression and sound...a pleasure to read.' ? Bruce King, The Little Magazine 'Unlike many of the Indian English poets of the present, Priya doesn't make her poems obtuse; being also a novelist, she follows a loose narrative pattern in her series of poems.' ? The Hindu '?swoops and dives between space and time?her poems speak for themselves, to the reader and to each other, deliberately and clearly.' ? Dr Arshia Sattar 'Full of striking imagery, the form of these poems allows the passion to be expressed in their fullness, without it becoming an outpouring of emotions?shows what a contemporary poet can do with a traditional form.' ? The Book Review.
