Andrew Schelling -- "Some Unquenchable Desire" and "Erotic Love Poems from India"

Andrew Schelling will speak about and sign his new book, Some Unquenchable Desire: Sanskrit Poems of the Buddhist Hermit Bhartrihari, and Erotic Love Poems from India: 101 Classics on Desire and Passion, on Wednesday, February 20th at 7:30pm.

About Some Unquenchable Desire:
Although few facts are known about his life, the Indian poet Bhartrihari leaps from the page as a remarkably recognizable individual. Andrew Schelling’s translation represents a rare opportunity for English-language readers to become acquainted with this fascinating poet. Some Unquenchable Desire is a compelling, personally curated set of translations.

About Erotic Love Poems from India:
Graceful and yet remarkably playful, intensely passionate, and at times hinting of divine transcendence, the poems translated here offer poignant glimpses into the many faces of erotic love. Erotic Love Poems from India, known in Sanskrit as the Amarushataka (“One Hundred Poems of Amaru”), was compiled in the eighth century and remains to this day one of India’s finest collections of love poetry.
