Start by marking Grace And Mercy In Her Wild Hair . I love the goddess Kali as I have been drawn to her for a year now. She is a bad-ass goddess. I think that these poems transition really nicely as in the beginning there was a lack of self-acceptance in the narrator.

Later, he surrenders and that is exactly what this goddess does. I truly wish I could read these poems in the native tongue, but alas, I cannot.

Compare with Singing to the Goddess: Poems to Kali (Rachel McDermott 2001) and the religious legend-driven failed poetry . one aspect i would have liked would be a parallel inclusion of the original texts of these poems.

Compare with Singing to the Goddess: Poems to Kali (Rachel McDermott 2001) and the religious legend-driven failed poetry of Ramprasad, the melodious mystic by Swami Budhananda. Bengali sources (first lines) missing. while nathan and seely cite the original poem reference, but doesn't even bother giving the title line of the original. thus, without these bengali texts, one has no clue at all about the originals, many of which someone reading the text may actually have.

Reviews about Grace and Mercy in Her Wild Hair: Selected Poems to the Mother Goddess (4):
Xlisiahal
Different Deities than Rumi (Hindi, I believe, as opposed to Sufi), but all hearts seem to call on God for the same humble things. Ramprasad is a similar clear writer. He tends to focus on the the Mother Kali's seemingly callous, destructive side, but his laments are very real and current time, despite centuries having passed. And also humorous, because unfortunately there is often humor in tragedy.
Ximathewi
If you are unfamiliar with the ecstatic religious poetry tradition - Rumi, Mirabai, ... this is not the volume to start on; read Mirabai's For Love of the Dark One first. However, if you have some familarity with the tradition, you'll find this book fascinating - this is more recent (18th century) and closer to the tribal origins of the worship of Kali/Uma/Pavarti/Gauri/Tara. These poems are popular in the sense that they have been kept alive through oral transmission rather than written manuscripts. One poem with a surprising rural flavor stands out: ".../My body is Tara's field/ in which the God of Gods/ like a good farmer / sows his seed with a great mantra. / Around this body, faith / is set like a fence / with patience for posts ..."

Ohm Krim Kali Ma!
Vushura
The poetry in this book is beautiful, you can feel the devotion in every word. It is a must have for any devotee of Ma Kali.
