Join Tapasya Narang as she hosts a conversation between two Irish poets exploring love, travel, and the life of the mind in Ireland in 2021. Nidhi Zak/Aria Eipe and Supriya Kaur Dhaliwal will read from new books set for publication in the coming year.
Nidhi Zak/Aria Eipe is a poet, pacifist and writer of fables. Her debut collection, Auguries of a Minor God, will be published by Faber in July 2021. Its first half explores love and the wounds it makes, journeying through the five arrows of Kāma, the Hindu god of desire and memory. The second is a long narrative poem ‘A is for Arabs’, which follows a different kind of journey, offering an intimate account of migration and exile, of home and belonging.
Supriya Kaur Dhaliwal’s poetry has appeared in Ambit, Banshee, Poetry Ireland Review, The Bombay Literary Magazine and many others. Her work is marked by its precise wit, its flaneur’s eye for the feel of a place, its complex emotional realities that shine a light on life as a millennial under late capitalism. Her first book of poems, The Yak Dilemma, will be published by Makina Books later this year.
