Under the Thin Layers of Light

Under Thin Layers of Light
By Hassanal Abdullah

Asian & Asian American Studies. Translated from the Bengali by Jyotirmoy Datta, Nazrul Islam Naz, Siddique M. Rahman, Purnima Ray, Dhamanjoy Saha, and the author. Bilingual Edition. “I admire Hassanal Abdullah’s poetry tremendously. He is able to be lyrical without losing meaning… amusing and serious… He takes us back and forth between these emotions… [His] sonnets sound like the Song of Songs in the Bible.”—Hal Sirowitz

“Hassanal Abdullah is a phenomenon. Among today’s writers from Bengal, he is perhaps unique in his ability to cross geographical, linguistic, and literary borders. He does so with the ease of a petrel crossing storm-tossed seas. With awesome speed, he masters literary genres as far apart as the sonnet and the epic.”—Jyotirmoy Datta
