POWER OF POETRY

The Hocking Hills Festival of Poetry
Amit Majmudar

Amit is Ohio's first poet Laureate. He practices medicine in Columbus.

His latest book Dothead has received great reviews:

"Dothead amounts to nothing less than a torrent of poetic inventiveness driven by the inexhaustible poetic energy of Amit Majmudar.  His delight in deploying his formal skills combines remarkably with his wide range of interests to produce a collection of poetry both riveting and enviable.  Drones, torture, immigration, weaponry, James Bond, King Lear, medical practice, Hinduism, and the sex life of Adam and Eve are but a few of the subjects treated here without any sacrifice of lyric texture or pulse.  Majmudar stands out clearly and forcefully in the overpopulated tableau of contemporary American poetry." 

                                                  - Billy Collins, former U.S. Poet Laureate
