Sudeep Sen's FRACTALS includes a wide swath of his poetry, from 1980 to the present, as well as a representative collection of his translations into English of other poets writing in Bengali, Hindu, Urdu and other languages. Sen's poems are both vivid observations and insightful meditations, often ekphrastic in that they are inspired by other art forms -- from modern European painters to classical Indian dancers. Narratives generally underlie his poems, giving us stories from around the world, past and present, from the grit of war to the mysteries of mythology. This collection gathers the best work from a writer described by Outlook India as ""the best-known Indian poetic voice of his generation working in English.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..".In Fractals, Sudeep Sen is telling the world that he has produced a substantial body of work, some of it honoured by international prizes and worthy of standing between hard covers on a serious reader s shelf.... Sen has carved out a distinctive space for himself. It s time for the rest of us to sit up and take notice." Shashi Tharoor, Outlook India"
"Fractals gathers more than three decades of poetry from one of India s most technically gifted poets working in English. Sen s poetic scope and knowledge of form and meter will dazzle poetry lovers while drawing in more casual admirers with his sophistication of language and range of topics. Fractals is an important retrospective collection from a poet even now just reaching the height of his powers." World Literature Today Nota Benes"
"Fractals contains a collection of over 250 new poems and translations composed between 1998 and 2015. It is like the Russian matryoshka, dolls-within-dolls, where each poem goes on revealing the other. Sudeep Sen has a deft ability to be both realistic and self-effacing, expressing control and poetic facility embedded in structure . . . . Sen s poems wiggle us out from our well settled notions about poets and poetry. They are by turn rhythmic, subtle, versatile, vivacious and innovative. His poems are always balanced and evoke various emotions. Fractals with its various experiments in poetic style can be called as a promoter of avant-garde. It s a comprehensive collection of highly stylized and experimental poetry collection with camera sharp imagery an awaited volume from one of India s leading poets." Queen Sarkar and H.S. Komalesha, ashvamegh.net"
