Reviews

"Grave and witty, classical and contemporary, The Long Meadow is a casually brilliant collection of poems. Seshadri is a writer of subtle, elastic and unblinking intelligence. Profound and delightful, The Long Meadow well deserves the high distinction bestowed upon it by the James Laughlin Award." --Campbell McGrath, citation for the James Laughlin Award "This is a strong, almost reckless voice turning dark experience into an unrelenting sense of possibility. From the rhyming stanzas to a long prose meditation, the power of casual declamation holds sway." --Los Angeles Times Book Review "[Seshadri's] ability to see where the fantastic and the realistic mingle, 'where matter becomes number and number matter, ' and to draw casually convincing distinctions gives this book its understated but gently persuasive power." --The New York Times Book Review Grave and witty, classical and contemporary, "The Long Meadow" is a casually brilliant collection of poems.
