I have read a handful of poems that are imaginative, credible or impressive which apparently is taking a back seat now. This book scores a ton on this end while allowing the readers interpretation to run its vivid course. Some categories carry a deep sense of forbearance, intimacy and personal stance that are gaslighted by this author or maybe it’s just my opinion. Otherwise was insightful to go through the whole sections of poetry which are a treat to the fanatics. Hope my review was helpful to persuade enough to try this out. If so drop your view for a healthy discussion.

This book is not a memoir of Machiavelli life, but covers his political views, liberal beliefs and his reasons to why Italy failed to progress in terms of personal greed. His comparison with Roman empire draws a conclusion on how religious institutions have played to promote their civic culture and suggests to implement the same strategy on Italian socialism. Why do I find Machiavelli’s fancies the constitution of Rome instead, whereas minimal with the barbarians in Italy? Historical facts are argued enough, apparently one sided so it is hard to conclude but good to hear their thoughts.

Oscar Wilde’s quotes of various books are encapsulated onto a single book that gives us an easy read of his witty works under one roof.

What is happiness in the realm of mathematical equations and where to configure the buried analogy which is entangled between the web of real and unreal perceptions. Well, this is all lodged in here with spectacle views. Not many are entitled to accuse life as losing battleground, particularly when catered to complex conjectures filled with negative connotations. Same applies for any erudite to dismiss the existence ideology, but what stays apart is the way author bridges language syntax, rationale and the philosophical concepts to justify his statements. This is what steals the show, at least to me it did with rain of words at the appropriate places. This statement is thought provoking- “Instant enlightenment after all is another fantasy born out of laziness and hope”. Appreciate viewers input on this and happy to contemplate.

The author has instilled what she wanted to convey through the medium of poems. A poem in which heroism is replaced with pseudo romantic masquerades. It is an attempt to a conscious deliverance of living beyond the poetic representation. Her poem is not a propaganda symposium as it is led to be believed rather buried in motto in the imaginations of its presentation only to be awoken by the depth of unimaginable experience. Well, the author is of Russian origin whose visionary, fusion of literal precision, parables have quenched my crawling thirst for literature. This work has hammered everlasting impression to me.

Wonder where to start about this playwright and what to offer to justify the true shades of life. After all everything down to how well the living was and the difference it made to serve some purpose. Well, It is about Ekdal ideology that required its countenance and account of his existence which was challenged, tested and dusted by his idealist friend Gregers Werle, who enters his home to tarnish the lie that embroiled within the Ekdal family. Apart from few re known classic mysteries never tried books that deliver the flow of intended meaning through plays of such caliber which is astounding in my honest opinion. My favorite line is “Oh, life wouldn’t be so bad in spite of everything all we poor wretches need is to be left in peace by those damned bailiffs who turn up on our doorsteps brandishing the demands of idealism”. Thoroughly promising fare and highly recommended read for sure.

Poems from Sanskrit translations are not many since it narrows to limited mythological ancient texts, but the author has made an effort to translate this anthology works which must be applauded. Being a complex language with different metrical forms and subtlety will be demanding to extract its true essence but no where it lagged. Each verse is filled with richness of wisdom from that period into ample of elegance and quality to stretch the imagination. Especially this poem stole my heart – “Ah, poverty, I mourn for your sad fate, so long ago you claimed me as your friend, And ever since have been my constant guest. Where will you find a home when I am dead?” by Sudraka. This shows how introspective, articulate the poet has been which reflects on the works. Try it to prove me otherwise, happy to corroborate.

I was expecting introduction of the medieval era of philosophy with a scoop of positivism which apparently was not the scenario rather a subliminal drag on the inclination of other standing philosophies. The ideology of Averroes on single minded self is an unwarranted strike on the main stream thinkers. His statement that “All humans share a single mind” smells of Edmund Husserl principles of consciousness. But have to blow author had rushed up his points at the end of the book with attacks on how lopsided medieval philosophy had been. It is significant to get the right historical data irrespective of sidelining its prominence which is an irrevocable hiatus for overall educational and political growth. So relieved to see author voice on this topic and hope its essence is thoroughly exhibited.

This will be my first poetry book that seized me to read and find it incompetent to comprehend on what is intended to convey. Is it proposed to be an affair on death premises, even if that is true wonder of its catered audience. The philosophical thoughts are injected enough to prod on but feel nothing to linger afterwards. I was intimidated by the views of Martin Heidegger about this work and that is what has prompted me to be sneaky. Certain words did capture my vocabulary interest such as nebulous parabolas, orbital methadone and pseudo longinus. This quote feeds the curious minds “There is a sense of reality behind what reality senses”, “Time present and time past are nothing but future to me, I am not mad, chronology just made me look that way”. I need to read more of poetry books to get familiar with the appropriate inference, but as a starter hope this stirs the right notions. Well, it did to me.

Something got into me to explore various philosophical themes of nonfiction books at a stretch. Started with Heidegger and now Derrida, I must admit that this author has delivered what they have promised to offer with less taxing excerpts. The concept of deconstruction is quite complex with un-decidability as the core which might be hard to apply the logic in the everyday stance. May be this is my personal view here, but undeniable of its application to linguistics elements. Is Derrida’s thoughts are like nihilism by any chance or a directive of transcendental solipsism. Either ways good to embrace the revolutionary thinking to succeed in a metaphysical procedure. The quote such as “Writing is a remedy for deficient memory and limited wisdom” and “As for wisdom, you offer your students a mere appearance of it, not the reality” shows his conceptual elaboration and intrusive thought seeding skills. So as an introduction this book serves right. Simply go for it without any second thoughts.
