William Radice

William Radice was born in 1951 in London, and has had a double career as a poet and as a scholar and translator of Bengali. He has written or edited nearly thirty books. His volumes of verse include Strivings (1980), Louring Skies (1985), The Retreat (1994) and Gifts (2002); his translations include Tagore's Selected Poems, Selected Short Stories and the plays, The Post Office and Card-Country; Martin Kämpchen's The Honey-Seller and Other Stories; and Puccini's Turandot for the English National Opera. Among his recent books are Particles, Jottings, Sparks: The Collected Brief Poems of Rabindranath Tagore, and Myths and Legends of India. He has given numerous lectures and poetry readings all around the world and has received literary prizes in both India and Bangladesh. He has also been a regular contributor to BBC Radio 2's early morning "Pause for Thought." He is married with two daughters, and divides his time between London and Northumberland.

A Hundred Letters from England

"I was not surprised when William told me that the Statesman had asked him to write a regular column. It was more than yet another feather in his cap. Rather, this column has supported and expressed what he sees as his life's work: the dialogue between Europe and India, the meeting of two civilised cultures for mutual refined enjoyment and personal enrichment … these texts form a strand of cultural history. No matter how topical and fleeting this strand may have seemed at the time, it is more than worthy of preservation in its totality, worthy of a place on one's bookshelf."

– Martin Kämpchen

For four years from June 1998, William Radice has written a fortnightly "Letter from England" for the Statesman in India. Covering a wide range of topics – cinema, theatre, music, education, politics, current affairs and others – these quintessentially personal pieces make this collection what it is: witty, humane and affecting.
