Eric Trott has been writing poetry ever since when he was just a child and continues to do so till today. Thoughts and Poetry from the Soul is a collection of his thoughts and some of his best poems. Eric is a person who thinks deeply about life, and his poems reflect that. Some talk about his life journey and the emotions attached to his experiences along the way. They describe the joys and sorrows of growing up for him as a child, which was mainly tough; the heartaches, disappointments, and frustrations he faced as a young man; and the wisdom gained in later years. Some are reminiscent of the past, and others describe his observations on the world and on life and how it is lived. His poems cover a wide range of topics, including love, hate, romance, nature, encouragement, the world, the environment, and God. Though some are a bit on the philosophical side, they are mostly easy, not just to understand but to identify with as well.

In these intimate, sometimes painfully frank poems, Andrew McMillan takes us back to childhood and early adolescence to explore the different ways we grow into our sexual selves and our adult identities. Examining our teenage rites of passage: those dilemmas and traumas that shape us – eating disorders, masturbation, loss of virginity – the poet examines how we use bodies, both our own and other people’s, to chart our progress towards selfhood.
McMillan’s award-winning debut collection, physical, was praised for a poetry that was tight and powerful, raw and tender, and playtime expands that narrative frame and widens the gaze. Alongside poems in praise of the naivety of youth, there are those that explore the troubling intersections of violence, masculinity, class and sexuality, always taking the reader with them towards a better understanding of our own physicality. ‘isn’t this what human kind was made for’, McMillan asks in one poem, ‘telling stories learning where the skin/is most in need of touch’. These humane and vital poems are confessions, both in the spiritual and personal sense; they tell us stories that some of us, perhaps, have never found the courage to read before.

Owing to the urge to know the “why” of things and getting in touch with our emotions,
on one hand this book contains thought-provoking poems such as “24 Ghante” and “Kabristan,” and on the other hand I have tried to strike a chord with you with, “Bachpan ki sham,” ” J.K ki yaadein” and “Maa.”
Poetry touches and liberates our souls, and every creation is open to myriad interpretations. Hasrstein aims to do the same.

Sohini Basak’s intricately woven, exquisite debut collection breaks boundaries with form and gently collapses reality, dream and folklore into each other. There is a sense of endlessness in the interactions of poems with each other and with their sources which range from Bangla children’s classics to contemporary writers and ecological events. This is a collection that doesn’t stand still, despite its elegance and charm, somehow continually recreating its own time and space beyond the page.
