Mohyuddin's craft is composed of measurable touches that go hardly noticed. There is the jelly-fish in space (lament though the poem may be), a talking banana, binging on pumpkin pie.

Abstract:

Mohyuddin's craft is composed of measurable touches that go hardly noticed. There is the jelly-fish in space (lament though the poem may be), a talking banana, binging on pumpkin pie. The title refers to diaspora and the poems refer to families in and immigrants from Pakistan, with literal landscapes and clear memories to be enjoyed. And yet, the subject matter is overtaken by such themes as boundary, legacy, loss, claim. Whether a long narrative poem, or shorter lyric poems, these are the works of a poet, mature in his concerns and thinking.
