Meenachi: New Poems: v. 4

Ranjandaye Ramkissoon-Chen continues her legacy of probing research into the experiences, vaired and sometimes painful, of immigrants from India to Trinidad. She delves into their customs, their religion and philosophy and venerates ancestral pioneers. She also writes passionately about her parents and her people in Trinidad where she was born and where she practices her medical profession. Her poems are crisp, the sentences short-limned. Imagery, metaphor and factual information are combined in a mastery meld of truth and perception.
