Inspired by the great bhakti tradition of devotional poetry in India, Gabriel Rosenstock has added to his oeuvre by producing two remarkable books of poems, the bilingual Bliain an Bhandé/Year of the Goddess , first published by Dedalus Press in 2007 and his English-language debut from Salmon Poetry, Uttering Her Name. This edition of Bliain an Bhandé/ Year of the Goddess contains an interview with the poet, conducted by Dr Mícheál Ó hAodha, University of Limerick, in which Rosenstock talks freely about the ecstatic nature of neo-bhakti poetry, alluding as well to the spiritual anarchy which is so brilliantly expounded in his book The Pleasantries of Krishnamurphy: Revelations from an Irish Ashram (Non-Duality Press)
