    I read these poems by Laxmi Prasad Devkota in English. It can be very difficult to translate poetry into a different language, and the beauty of the poetry can be lost, sometimes more, sometimes less. But I think the translator, David Rubin, did well because these poems are beautiful. The imagery and clarity of writing is wonderful. I like most of these poems, some of them I love. I love “Beans and Rice and Mustard Greens” - (Dhāl-bhāt-dukū). “Minpachas,” reminds me of my own cold world, here in Mi I read these poems by Laxmi Prasad Devkota in English.

I love “Beans and Rice and Mustard Greens” - (Dhāl-bhāt-dukū). “Minpachas,” reminds me of my own cold world, here in Minnesota. “Pipedreams,” is an ironic poem about great wealth, Alexander the Great, and contentment. And it’s pretty funny, but also beautiful. “The Season of Life,” is a poem about the need to love, and Laxmi uses the metaphor of a farmer plowing the field to grow love. Here’s a section of that poem: ~ While it’s still the season of life plow, plow the field of the heart. Do not lie barren while the rain Pours down the pure white water of the mind. ~ It’s too bad more people don’t know about Laxmi Prasad Devkota. I hope his longer narratives like ~Sulocanā~ will be translated into English someday. Also, I appreciated the biographical information at the beginning of the book. It was informative and helped me understand the poems.
