Alamgir Hashmi

Neither This Time / Nor That Place

Published by Vision Press
1984
ISBN: ASIN B0006ENJA8

“Hashmi, in fact, represents the central tradition of our poetic culture—and, in this sense, his poems are the meeting ground of that synthesis which speaks for the modern man…In these poems we hear the voice of things, and the things open up to give poetic quality to the words. Hashmi creates poetry out of words.” —Gilani Kamran, Explorations

“Neither This Time / Nor That Place is Alamgir Hashmi’s fifth book of poetry. His style tends to be direct, almost conversational, his best images sharp and surprising… Usually Hashmi writes of rather mundane subjects: children playing in a creek, missing a train in Brussels. However, he manages to suddenly illuminate some hidden, magical corner of the ordinary world…”—Asiaweek

“Note the range and imaginative power of this controlled and disciplined body of work.”—David McDuff, Stand

“The poems in Neither This Time / Nor That Place…offer an overwhelming sense of the just word justly spoken—perhaps all any poet could reasonably hope to achieve. A European milieu has provided the background for cross-cultural encounters which, in turn, generate moving poems.” —Janet M. Powers, JSAL

“Alamgir Hashmi is a poet of originality, one whose work confronts a variety of themes in a distinctive, energetic manner…”—John Greening, South West Review
