A MASTERPIECE INDEED - Silent Moments of Melancholy

One needs precise idea of what poetry and poetry writing is all about, in order to write about the poetry. It is the richest form of literature ever since.

And this book, Silent Moments of Melancholy, is its true sense is rich in its content, candidly justifying what poetry is and what it should be.

The poems are true reflections of what morose is, a dark poetry in all aspects. People may argue that why is poetry always sad, pessimistic, and dark. Well that's when and how your true and inte...

A stylish book with great poetry

Something I have liked after many years. After reading some boring rhyming poetry, this one sizzled me up like beautiful fireworks in the sky on a new years eve.
Beautiful poetry. I picked the book looking at the cover and the synopsis, as no sample poems were available. I don't regret my pick. Dont judge a book by its cover, they say. But I did and I am happy.
I am still reading some of the poems as not only are they hard hitting in messages but difficult to understand language wise as well....

An array of words indeed!

Loved the structure of poems, the imagery!
Very interesting!
A must buy for all those who appreciate poetry!

The only thing that I felt was the incorrect usage of punctuation. I hope to see them rectified in the second edition!

One hell of a book

Fabulous poetry though with a lot of tough words. But it is piercing and thoughtful, the poems are really dark in nature and stand true to the word poetry. Best part is not many poems are rhyming, which makes it even a truthful reading experience. Very well composed and thematic. Nice flow. Painful but a pleasured reading!

Poetry as it should be

Reminds me of the times when our English teacher in school recited poems to us and explained their meaning as well. However, she also warned us that her interpretation may not always be true, every reader can come up with his/her own interpretation.
I learnt to understand poetry at a very young age. There after I read works of Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Keats, Eliot, Neruda. I loved them all.
Along the journey I started feeling that poetry is losing its charm, the reception for poetry diminish...

Entire visualisation I get from the poems is an unexpected trauma

Poetry can take various forms. There lies the beauty of this form of art. A million brains reading the same poem can come out with a million interpretations. It is so vast, profound, and versatile.

I write these words after reading the impactful poetry book, Silent Moments of Melancholy, which I recently borrowed from one of my friends (I will own a copy soon - treasurable, pleasurable).

Though I struggled with few words that the poet has used, the entire collection is a classic work of poe...

A classic piece

I Would say this is simply amazing. A collectible for your personal library.

I have become a fan of the poet, Amol. He has really came out with a masterpiece, a differentiator from what we get today.

My suggestion: A must buy for the reader who values literature.

It's a good book indeed, but good for a one time read only.

I am the first one posting a critic about your book. It may have been a nice book to many, but to me as a person or rather as a critic, it should have had atleast a little of your happiness in there. It could have started with happiness, showed a body of sadness and ending atleast a little with your happiness or something, where you are still in search of your happiness. (Or still on the look out for one...) Ultimately you always want to read something that makes you smile. It's ur happiness ...

After such a long time...a wonderful poetry book

I am shaken and stirred after reading this poetry book. Indeed the agony of today's generation is painfully highlighted in this book through the form of poetry.
Poems certainly break through you, piercing deep down into your heart.
I am really feeling inferior to write a review for this book for I don't have words...nothing in my vocabulary that can match the words that Amol has used.
A terrific prolific poet and though the theme is melancholic, I felt refreshed to have read such a beautiful ...
