Item description for No Man's Land by Tupa Snyder...
Tupa Snyder's early life and education was in India. She grew up a child of the remnants of the Raj - the British Empire in India - in the isolated compound of a power plant in Calcutta, thirty years after India's independence. The material of her poetry comes from a strong leaning toward European Romantic Poetry and Philosophy, and an interest in delineating a fragmented, lyric self through metonymy and inversion. Tupa has a lifelong interest in metaphorical writing and thinks of poetry as a dwelling space. Her love of poetry has lead to two career changes, from mathematics to English literature during her BA (University of Poona), and to creative writing as a second MA (Illinois State University), and a PhD at the University of Exeter. Tupa Snyder's work demonstrates the arrival of a confident new voice that straddles cultural divides, and geographic locations - with sections of the book devoted to each of the countries that she has called home over the past years.
