Ha Ha Ho Ho

Selected Rhymes of Annada Shankar Ray

Writing in the long Bengali tradition exemplified by Rabindranath Tagore and Sukumar Ray, Annada Shankar Ray created poetry of ingenious rhyme and sound patterns, startling yet apt metaphors and descriptions, and dazzlingly imaginative subjects that range from satire to fantasy, or even combine the two. At the same time, he bridges adult and children’s poetry, opening up the latter to the messy, crazy, ironic world that the former inhabits every day.

This book offers English-language readers a glimpse of this playful genius’s world, gathering some of his best-known and most celebrated rhymes and presenting them in a striking design that matches Ray’s innovative fancy with wildly creative layouts.
