How to Wash a Heart-Review of Bhanu Kapil’s Work-New Associations, BPC journal, 2021

Bhanu Kapil’s iconic poetry articulates the unbearable, the difficult-to-say story of what some might consider ‘ungratefulness’- the immigrant who finds himself/herself in someone else’s country/home. How to Wash a Heart, her most recent poetry received the T.S. Eliot prize this year.

This is a review of her work, published in the BPC journal New Associations, in August 2021.

  1. I sent Bhanu my review of her work and she was positive and thoughtful in her reply. Amongst other things she mentioned how much psychoanalysis had helped her in her journey.
