Kandasamy, Meena: This Poem Will Provoke You (eBook)

In this chapbook of poems, Meena Kandasamy juxtaposes the romantic ideals of love with the horrors of everyday life. Even as her love poetry plays itself out on the embattled terrain of language, the political verse explores rape culture and state violence. Two of the poems in the collection are a response to the threats to the freedom of expression which endanger artistic process and political resistance.
