Controversial Book on Mahatma Gandhi Makes Waves Across India

Great Soul — Mahatma Gandhi and His Struggle with India, the new book by Pulitzer Prize-winning former New York Times editor Joseph Lelyveld, has stirred controversy and anger in India over references to the Father of India’s alleged racism, bisexuality, sexual perversion, and even political ineptitude that could actually have impeded India’s independence struggle.

Bei Dao and Rosanna Warren

Thu, Mar 31, 2011, 8:15pm

“A Bei Dao poem feels as if it follows the pulse of consciousness, as it moves from metaphor to metaphor, thought to thought,” wrote Robert Hass. “Something like a pilot light turned down to the jets and the flickers of a single, intense, blue flame.” Bei Dao’s most recent book is The Rose of Time: New and Selected Poems. “Rosanna Warren lives in our tarnished, everyday, ramshackle world of loss, anguish, and sacrifice,” wrote the late Anthony Hecht. “but she inhabits almost as vividly a realm of classic purity; and in some of her best, most moving poems she dwells in both regions at once, and within, as it seems, the same breath.” Ms. Warren’s new collection is Ghost in a Red Hat.
