    Praise for IN LOVE WITH A GORGON “…interesting and intriguing.” – Homi K. Bhabha “Azam’s new poems remind us that every generation needs to recreate the songlines that map our progress from then to now. These are the lyrics that describe who we were and what we are becoming. They are musical, sensual and intelligent; and they take us forward, beyond grief for what was to hope for what might be.” – Linda Rogers “They are all written with anger, bitterness, despair even… a strange feeling that his poetry is lived-through by him and yet detached, personal and yet impersonal. Maybe it’s because of the elevated tone, the rhetoric (and I mean it in the positive sense).” – Julia Klimenova “I find in his poems intensities that one rarely comes across. The poems trouble me because of their oblique slant though they are in themselves masterly compositions. They contain much pain unraveled with tenderness and in a muted language. It’s a truism that all a poet writes is his/her own autobiography.... More > His contains a unique landscape where he locates himself like an alien...I hope his new collection gets all the attention it deserves.” – Dilip Chitre “Richly adventurous in form, language and idiom, and with their own vastly erudite frame of reference, these poems span satire, lyric and passionate polemic to create a uniquely post-modern, post-colonial sensibility. Sofiul Azam has the energy and refinement to develop this into something truly great, with the presence and consciousness of the human in the face of the universe… I have read these poems very quickly and they look very powerful. I’m overwhelmed.” – Josephine Dickinson< Less
