Augatora is a word lost from language. In Old High German it meant, more or less, eye gate (window with an inbuilt etymology). The windows in this book open on real and imagined land and cityscapes. Memory, science, language, history, and love remain Bhatt's themes. Places featured in the poems include Durban, Riga, New Orleans, Amsterdam, Jerusalem, Barcelona, and the small island of Juist off the German North Sea coast, setting of the long poem, The Hole in the Wind, which has been broadcast by BBC Radio Drama.
