 L'avis des éditeurs  
 
La poésie de Yuyutsu R. D. Sharma mêle humour et gravité pour raconter l'expérience commune humaine. Entendre ses poèmes en népali, c'est entendre un chant venu des plus hautes cimes, mais c'est aussi pénétrer les fêlures de la modernité du monde. Qu'il évoque les porteurs de l'Himalaya, qu'il raconte ses aventures à New York, il décrit les expressions fondamentales de l'humanité en mêlant les rêves, l'espoir et la réalité. Son travail poétique est aussi bien nourri des grands auteurs (Shakespeare, Brecht, Pinter...) que de situations inédites et personnelles

A Trek with the Buddha Bard

A review of ANNAPURNA POEMS: Poems New & Collected, 2008

By

Yuyutsu RD Sharma

 

 

Yuyutsu RD Sharma’s face is like a mountain terrain, when the earth emerges in the gods’ peaks after a flash flood or when a river has receded after the monsoon’s regal fury. I noticed this as soon as I sat down opposite to him in the surprisingly sparsely populated Barista coffee shop in New Delhi’s fashionable Khan Market shopping area. Poet of the Himalayas, Yuyutsu’s greeting resounded almost true in what he wrote in “In the Mountains”:

 

Fragile my eyeglasses

fragile and foreign

I take them off;

There’s a speck of a scar in them.

 

On the mule path

I take them off

to face the green

stretch of mountains

beneath the saddle of Annapurnas.

 

 

Well, almost true, because he didn’t wear eyeglasses at our meeting! His dark irises...

KATHMANDU: Yuyutsu R D Sharma recited one of his favourite poems along with others and also briefed about the background of these poems and how its publishing was made possible at the pre-launch programme of his book titled, Space Cake Amsterdam at Nepal Tourism Board on September 2. “One must buy books in order to help writers survive,” briefed Sharma to the query put forth by an audience. “I am lucky to have this book published from Howling Dog Press because it is difficult to get your book published in a foreign language from foreign land,” said Sharma. He added, “One needs to have councils that fund and support writers which western countries have and unfortunately we lack.” The programme was organised by Howling Dog Press, Colorado that published Sharma’s book.
Sharma’s volume of poems in Space Cake Amsterdam is about his experiences while he travelled extensively through American States and different countries in Europe. “Though my poems are about my experiences in the west and the people I have encountered I talk about Himalayas and Nepal’s culture too because I carry them along with me in my mind wherever I go,” elaborated Sharma.
Sharma and other young writers read a selection of poems titled, Space Cake Amsterdam, Temple London, among others. The book is available at Pilgrims Book House and White Lotus Book Shop.

Praise for Yuyutsu RD Sharma’s Works

E-mail Print PDF

The ‘blinding snows of the Annapurnas ridge’ inspire a poetry that confronts natural magnificence with exuberant humanity. Yuyutsu R D Sharma’s generous vision embraces not only the landscape and its people but the lesser fauna, like the pigeons that speak ‘a kind of hushed speech that robbers might use’ and the mules on the Tibetan salt route, exhausted and bow-legged from hauling ‘cartons of Iceberg, mineral water bottles,/ solar heaters, Chinese tiles, tin cans…’ These vividly coloured, muscular and energetic poems have an atmosphere of freshness, as though the snow itself had rinsed and brightened them. Like the ‘waterfall beds that/ smelled of the birth of fresh fish’, they have the tangy, dust-free odour of language born of lived experience.

Carol Rumens, The United Kingdom

 

Yuyutsu RD Sharma brings the bracing airs of the Himalayas to any city. His vigorous, expansive and elemental poems leave Yeti tracks on the streets and mule trails on the Tube. They are packed with rapturous couplings of the urban and the feral.

Pascale Petit, Former Poetry Editor, Poetry London

 

Yuyutsu is a first-rate poet in English and an excellent place to begin if you want to get in touch with Nepalese writing today.
