Product Description

Renu Roy's poems are as much a journey into herself as a walk through the everyday world outside. Infused with passion and devoted to all that constitutes life and living, her poems are finely layered and nuanced. In her third collection, she returns with themes of love, grief, quest, transience, and the wonder of existence. With deftness, she uses the resources of language and metaphor to delve into the lived spaces she moves through and inhabits. The imagery lingers between the enigmatic and subtle, the powerful and vulnerable. The reader is propelled forward with the varied spectrum, her gift of empathy and compassion towards the human condition. Brave, evocative and poignant, The Far Side and Other Poems, at once personal and universal, is an exceptional and rewarding read. Inspired by themes as diverse as nature, mythology, and politics, the poems in Renu Roy’s The Far Side and Other Poems are written in a gentle voice, encouraging us to reflect on the peace or strife they describe.
