Kalagora in Poetry Review
Kalagora the book was reviewed by Todd Swift in the winter edition of Poetry Review. Below are excerpts:
Bose is also a “hybrid” poet, in the post-colonial sense of the term – his work in Kalagora aiming to merge, bridge, fuse, and intertwine (as they say), the diction, themes, and experiences, of various centres, some cosmopolitan, others less so, in a far more earnestly engaged (and academic) way than Daljit Nagra does. It may be a rule of thumb that the more experimental the poet, the more serious, the less funny. This is the kind of poetry with yin and yang in it, and lots of indents.
