The story of poetry is as old as human civilization itself. Its reproduction has changed and mutated: from papyrus to the velocity of the digital screen. Its forms, too, have been manifold: the daylight of romanticism, the heresy of the Beats to the combustion of free verse. Even today, it reigns supreme as the consummate treatise of the human condition: encapsulating the pain, the beauty, the misery and the hope.
Monsoonletters Bilingual Collection of Poems hopes to uphold and build upon this rich canon of verse. Through the coalescence of Bangla and English poetry, two very different, at times counterposing but ultimately fraternal traditions, we hope to fuel the already virulent engines of creativity, owing to the boldness, candor and experimentation of our young writers.
