I read Silent Words by Nishant Gang sometime last year and loved it for its simplicity. So when I got the chance to read the second book of the author, I couldn’t have second thoughts. And here I come with my thoughts on Episodic Poetry.
Episodic Poetry is a collection of 49 poems and 1 message with a variety of themes and lessons. Each opens up with a musing and ends with a hook for us to think over. Think over our lives, our actions, our reactions, our perceptions. The poems nudge us to prod further, delve deeper, and understand the reality behind the surface.
Written lucidly, the poems have different insights to offer. While Enlightening Night talks about how darkness and our lows are doors to knowledge, Whimsical is all about burying oneself in pleasant nostalgia. How a thing as simple as a tiny plant could comfort our tensed nerves, how only one can fix a few cracks that hurt them. How a genius is mad while he’s alive and spoke highly of when they leave for the heavenly abode.
Gang picks up nuances from everyday life and describes them in his poems. He is not pretentious but clear about his vague thoughts. He has a keen eye for observing the minutest of details and a mind that always wanders. His knowledge and observations trickle down into this book and make for a good reading experience.
For beginners in poetry, Episodic Poetry would be a good starting point. For others, they might like a few verses depending on their understanding and taste.
