"My Body in bliss, a river of wine My eyes are open, saqi, come fill these cups Hu Hu Ha! I cry, madness in my heart." Lal Ded, habba khatun, 'Rupa Bhavani, arnimal: these four women poets, dating from different periods in the history of Kashmir, are household names in the Valley and are claimed by all, no matter what religious, ethnic or other group they belong to. In this beautiful volume, Neerja mattoo brings their work together for the first time, placing it in two traditions, the mystic and the lyric. Fine and nuanced translations of their poems are accompanied by brief introductions to their work that place the women in a historical context and deal with both the facts and the beliefs about their work.
