My Review

We are nothing but a showpiece

of the showcase of society. 

Another day and another poetry book to be reviewed. December has been very light in terms of reading and that’s how I would prefer my next year to be. Easy peasy reading. Poetry is undoubtedly one of the best genres in literature. I see a lot of experimentation in it, a lot of raw emotions in it, and trust me, it’s all mesmerizing.

Offsprings by Krishanu Banerjee is a collection of 70 poems spread across different subjects relating to life and living. The simple expressive writing style brings out the genuine beauty of a poem and I absolutely loved savoring each poem. There are poems that speak love, there are words containing bespoke beauty of dreams, there are verses that infuse you with motivation, and there are lines that strike the right chord with your heart.

Some of the poems express a writer’s heart, his connection with the pen which was is surreal. In the most uncomplicated manner, the author has attempted to fill the reader with motivation to wake up to a new day and take the challenges of life heads on. The effortless beauty of writing comes alive as the words are put into a rhythm and rhyme. Although the struggle to fit words in a pattern could have been lessened, nevertheless, the intent of the book has come out well. Honestly, I enjoyed reading this book and I would suggest it to people who look forward to reading poetry dipped in different hues and shades. The newbies would be very much comfortable in comprehending and enjoying this book.

MY RATING: 3/ 5

  1. I’ve GOT to get some poetry reading started in the New Year! I’ve been so tied up with Cybils that I’ve put my Rumi aside and haven’t bought any new collections of poetry lately (That seems to be the only way I can follow through.) You might happen to have a collection????
