    1. Capturing in crisp phrasing the helpless desire, burning longing, and exhausted surrender to the beloved.

Dimock, Jr. collaborated on this 1967 verse translation of the lyrics of Bengali devotional songs portraying the lover's longing for the beloved as a metaphor for the soul's longing for the divine, and in doing so, they created an enduring classic that should both impress readers knowledgeable about poetry and delight a more general audience.

    3. I wanted to love this collection, but I will settle for liking it instead. Even with a great poet like Denise Levertov as one of the translators, I have to say these English renderings don't quite soar the way they clearly want to. Still, it is a good selection of Krishna bhakti poems. I'd give it a modest recommendation, particularly to Krishna devotees.

    4. This is a short little book comprised of poems writtent to describe love. There are a few short areas that are a bit hard to follow if you have limited knowledge of Hinduism, however, the majority of the book provides great material for those that are new to this form of faith and the culture surrounding it.

    5. Beautiful. Throws me more deeply in love with Krishna, while totally connecting with Radha's situation. I want to know more.
