Rachel McDermott is Assistant Professor of Asian and Middle Eastern Cultures at Barnard College.
Offers a much-needed contribution to the field of South Asia studies and to the history of religions as a whole ... McDermott's volume is unquestionably the most complete, meticulous, and readable collection of Sakta devotional poetry ever published ... McDermott has succeeded in one of the most difficult tasks of translation - that of remaining true to the literal text while still presenting the poems in a fluid and provocative style that really captures the powerful emotion of the Bengali songs. As such this collection should appeal to a wide audience - not just to South Asian scholars, but to a more general nonacademic audience, as well as to students in graduate and undergraduate classrooms.
