For the first time, the Voices of Tibet's diaspora find expression in an Anthology of poetry composed in English : Muses In Exile. History teaches us that artistic and intellectual creativity REACH their zenith under the most adverse conditions. And so it has been with Tibetan verse. Of the thirty one writers published here, some have already died young. One at home in Tibet; Others in Alaska, Toronto, New Delhi and in the mecca of their exile Dharamshala. However, far flung their lives, the longing for a homeland, the emigre's estrangement, is expressed here in unison to a variety of literary tunes. This collection is testimony to the anguish, rootlessness and unwavering destiny of a displaced people still mentally marching homeward across the Himalayas.Printed Pages: 225.
