Commenting on Hoskote's poetry on the Poetry International website, the poet and editor Arundhathi Subramaniam observes: "His writing has revealed a consistent and exceptional brilliance in its treatment of image. Hoskote's metaphors are finely wrought, luminous and sensuous, combining an artisanal virtuosity with passion, turning each poem into a many-angled, multifaced experience."

Ranjit Hoskote belongs to the younger generation of Indian poets who began to publish their work during the early 1990s. He is the author of six collections of poetry: Zones of Assault, The Cartographer's Apprentice, The Sleepwalker's Archive, Vanishing Acts: New & Selected Poems 1985-2005, Central Time and The Atlas of Lost Beliefs. Hoskote has been seen as extending the Anglophone Indian poetry tradition established by Dom Moraes, Nissim Ezekiel, A.K. Ramanujan and others through major new works of poetry.

Ranjit Hoskote is a poet, cultural theorist and curator. He is the author of six collections of poetry and has translated the 14th century Kashmiri mystic Lal Ded's poetry as I, Lalla: The Poems of Lal Ded. Hoskote was curator of India's first-ever national pavilion at the Venice Biennale, 2011 and co-curated the 7th Gwangju Biennale (2008). He is Poetry Editor for DOMUS India, and lives in Bombay.
