Glorious Shadows is a collection of poems by Krishna Sawant which touched a wide variety of topics ranging from self-love to hope, with tones ranging from realistic to tragic as well.
While blank verse has become very common nowadays and you can find a poet around every corner, I do believe that Sawant has the special something in her writing. I felt her poems through me and although I cannot say I have personally experienced each and everything here, the emotions were portrayed in such a way that I could relate and empathize. Therein lies the quality of a poet, I feel and hence, I can truly say that Sawant has done a great job.
There are also tiny illustrations at the bottom of every pg and the titles of the poems are added at the bottom as well, a style which is becoming more and more popular everyday.
There are various pieces that I personally loved and adored and I shall mention a few here:
- Stop Selling My Soul
- I Destroyed Myself
- Silent Spectator
- Curdled Love
- Waxing and Waning
- Writing of a Suicide Note
I rated this collection 4/5 stars.
