Namrata reviews The Poetry Conclave Year Book 2022 edited by Sharmila Roy, Aneek Chatterjee, Gopal Lahiri and Rajorshi Patranabis (Published by Authors Press, 2022) calling it a carefully strung priceless necklace.
Poetry Conclave Year Book 2022 is a poetry collection consisting of works of 64 poets (from India and abroad) across themes and moods. Poetry Conclave was formed with the motive of providing a platform for writing and reading English poetry. The love for poetry further metamorphosized into poetry collections.
As the editors’ note mentions, the poems in this collection are diverse and spanning across myriad moods and emotions. This ensures reading this book is a roller coaster ride. One doesn’t know what emotion the next verse will evoke and therein lies the thrill of expecting the unexpected.
