This is a luminous collection of poetry by one of the most humane, learned and perceptive literary scholars to build a bridge between India and North America. While one can hear in Guha-Majumdar’s masterful language the echoes of American verse at midcentury—poised between formal elegance and dynamic informality, blending themes at once public and private—he brings to his retrospection, his coda, a spiritual vision leavened with humor and wit. In this gentle voice , moreover, he prompts intimations of a universal heritage across nations—a shared wisdom about suffering, wonder, and love—from traces of Buddhist, Hindu, classical Greco-Roman, Christian and other archetypal traditions. From the complexity of his intelligence and wide cultural engagement emerges the simplicity and lightness of grace.

 Coda is a tour de force of phraseological morphology which presents an astonishingly prolix array of figural invention. A leading globalist poet of his generation herein demonstrates in abundance how unpredictable the vicissitudes of original poetic fashioning capacity may be. His relish for depth and complexity in his engendering of philologically astute, constantly transforming clauses and phrases express a baroque like commitment to craft and intensity. His poetry at times recalls Wallace Stevens’ style in its polychromatic contrasts and startling, supremely elegant semiological colors, an inner furor raptus. It is this natural feeling for aesthetically beguiling transformation of elements, and assembling of stimulating architectures of design, that enhance Professor Guha Majumdar’s already incredibly rich and brilliant work.

Rupendra Guha Majumdar's remarkably vivid descriptions of the ordinary, meld with classical motifs to craft intensely poetic expressions. A soccer goal, a snowstorm or fossilized bones receive minute attention and are elevated to poetic heights.
