Like Kamala Das and Gauri Deshpande, Eunice de Souza’s writing is uninhibited. In the words of AID. Hope her poetry shows “directness, vigour and such a strange mixture of triumph, vision and agony”. The most dominant emotion that runs through her poems is anger, anger against social injustices and inequalities of every kind, against all sham, hypocrisy, and the aggressions of the male world.
Her analysis of man-woman relationships is marked not only by anger and protest but also by an objectivity and clinical sharpness and precision. More than everything else, brevity is her forte from which very often emerges the force of her poetic utterance.
