Knots is an amazing collection of contemporary poetry that addresses and discusses various emotions as well as issues. They are written in eloquently lucid manner which gives vivid expressions and thoughts. Sectioned into 7 different topics, these poetry will have a significant effect on your conscience.
Each of these highlights intense and powerful emotions such as being in love, caring for someone deeply, trusting a person, heartbreaks and most importantly about the mental illness that are not expressed and are kept bottled up only to suffer silently. This is the debut work yet her writing suggests she is well proficient and is more than capable of expressing her feelings dauntlessly.
There are a lot of contemporary poetry collections being published these days but I found this book to be quite different from others. That is because of the poet’s direct approach to the age-old taboos which are still frowned upon if spoken publicly, the restrictions and judgments regarding the freedom of women which is an on-going confab among generations and many more.
My favorite part is the Fantasia section. There she talks about dreams and just simply pondering on what do I really want from my life and how a person can find solace in the pages of book. I really connected to this part in particular.
Finally, I would definitely recommend this book. Honestly, Knots is a short book and can be completed in just single sitting but the impact on reader’s mind is exceptionally positive. This book will expand your mind and deepen your thoughts on the way you see the world and it is amazing to see the new authors being gallant to voice some of the serious topics of the society and ultimately helping in the biggest way possible. Some of the poetry in this collection are dark and can be a trigger to few of the readers so keep that in mind when you are reading this. The cover is eye-catching, simple but eye-catching nonetheless.
