Selected Bengali Poetry. B inoy Majumdar was a brilliant, eccentric, obscure and controversial poet whose life and work await chapters of penetrating research. Binoy is an extremely rare poet — it is hard to find a parallel in the western hemisphere. There is an intense purity in his work in which geometry, mathematics, and scientific logic couple with a unique lyric genre. Despite being a fine and talented engineer, a brilliant, innovative mathematician, a polyglot in all modes of use he was fluent in Bengali, English and Russian and an even more brilliant poet, Binoy led a rather distraught and disoriented life of extreme poverty and isolation. In the s, the state government of West Bengal, upon request from his literary cohorts, provided some support.

Hi, Thanks for such a brilliant post.! Binoy Majumer has used mathematical concepts in his poetry. Legacy is, usually poets avoid mathematics; and therefore, he was not properly understood by the Begali poets and Binoy was not most popular one, though exceptional. During last few years Professor Narayan Ch Ghosh, mathematician, has analysed his poems from mathematical stand point. He has written number of articles in different journals. Those extra-ordinary writings have opened a new window for assessment of Binoy from different point. Now revaluation has started.
