"If the breadth of Majmudar's ambition surprises, it says more about our poetic climate than about a rising young poet like Majmudar, who should be brimming with ambition. Art, as Frost reminds us, is a performance. What is the poetic line except a tightrope? We want to watch someone walk it over the abyss, all the while juggling plates and making us smile."
—A. E. Stallings
