Collected Poems represents more than three decades of work, starting with poems written in the early 1980s. It includes, for the first time, privately circulated, uncollected poems.‘I revel in Jeet Thayil’s poetry. He seems to be one of the most contemporary writers I know, and contemporary precisely because he has such command of the poetic and historical past, and because his invented language has such depth, archeological richness, and reality.’—Vijay Seshadri, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry.‘Most of Thayil’s poems chart paths to redemption, not necessarily his own- they could be the ways his various personae go.

The result is a mapping that excites, exhilarates and disturbs.’—Adil Jussawalla‘Thayil writes controlled verse, well-crafted, never obscure…’—Keki Daruwalla‘Thayil’s poetry leaves the reader with a sense of danger, of language teetering wildly on the edge of some precipice, between centuries, between continents, between fleetingly improvised realms, suspended somewhere between history and invention, reality and nowhereness.’—Arundhathi Subramaniam‘Thayil’s verse is eloquent, flowing, metrical, visceral.

He walks on the wild side. His voice is that of the present generation.’—Arshia Sattar‘Thayil’s poems refract his vibrant, unique and far-flung life experience through the prism of a tremendous lyric intellect.’—Philip Nikolayev
