Publisher's Synopsis

The Rivered Earth contains four libretti written by Vikram Seth to be set to music by Alec Roth - together with an account of the pleasures and pains of working with a composer.

Entitled 'Songs in Time of War', 'Shared Ground', 'The Traveller' and 'Seven Elements', they take us all over the world - from Chinese and Indian poetry to the beauty and quietness of the Salisbury house where the poet George Herbert lived and died.

Spanning centuries of creativity and humanity, these poems pulse with life, energy and inspired brilliance.

They are accompanied by four pieces of calligraphy by the author.
