Swatantra Sonnets

Swatantra Sonnets
By Hassanal Abdullah

Poetry. Bilingual edition. Translated from the Bengali by the author. “Sonnets, like diamonds, are these days cut and polished around the world. On the Subcontinent, they have been written in a host of languages, including Bengali, the original language of Hassanal Abdullah’s SWATANTRA SONNETS. He has been perfecting this form since the 1990s and has composed over 210. Some have been previously translated into English by Caroline Gill, a London poet, and by two Bengali poets Robiul Manik and Rahman Apu. This selection, translated by the author, can be thought of as a collection of gems that illuminate his originality of form.”—Joan Digby
