The Complete Poems of John Keats: Wordsworth Editions

November 12, 2017 • By

Poetry collections are often a respite for the persons who are marred by the whimsical world which is offended by just nothing… those who love literature and also those who have nothing to do with it, a good poem will always be good – irrespective of gender, caste, creed and race… poetry does not know any boundaries and nor do the lovers of poetry. Today, I will be reviewing The Complete Poems of John Keats (Wordsworth Editions). This is a collection which was also in my University syllabus and I had the luxurious chance to read and reread it many times and sometimes just the random readings. Today, I will share my opinions and experiences with this poetry collection of John Keats.READ MORE


Autobiography of a Yogi

Autobiography of a Yogi review

The popular actress Mariel Hemingway wrote in her book Finding My Balance that she was “mesmerized by the Autobiography of a Yogi and loved the whole great Hindu tradition of spiritual seeking …” The Beatles are said to be inspired by this great book by Paramahansa Yogananda and countless are the names and big names and people. Whom did not this book inspire and put on the ‘right track’ of spiritual rebirth of a kind? Paramahansa Yogananda was surely a gem for India and the great Indian Hindu culture and a way of living with traditions such high that anyone in the world’s diverse corners bows his head unto. His great work Autobiography of a Yogi brought this great tradition to the light and then the world knew not only a Yogi but also the entire clan of Yogis and a tradition of Yogis.READ MORE

Mulk Raj Anand was always known for his realism and his portrayal of the Indian society (which contained an image built on the grounds of truth and bitter truth, if needed). One such book by him was the celebrated novel Coolie. Coolie tells the story of Munoo, a boy who has to begin his life with misery and end on the same note, and if I may say, even more in misery! Other than the story which is commonly deemed as a novel, Coolie by Mulk Raj Anand tells many other things and speaks in abundance about the class difference which was there in the Indian society before our independence. (Unfortunately, we did not change more, did we?)READ MORE
