Book Review: Glittering Shadows: Manish Ranjan

Glittering Shadows is the poetic journey of Manish Ranjan who narrate an unspeakable and the invisible truth, and walk through a lonely and painful fact of atmosphere that cannot be defined, of certainties of the heart, of feelings that skim barely, shadows that become firm and a yearning burning of the beloved.

A path is not easy to those who set out to analyze an existential condition, in an attempt to enter, remain in the doorway, in the philosophical dimension of this poetry collection and what emerges is a portrait of a poet who uses words harmoniously ruling them with the rigor and brilliance of a great bard, as if they were one with him, and comes as an excellent knowledge and ability to use the instrumentation rhetoric, of a singular expressive compactness, of choice of words, finally, deeply motivated.

Through his passionate words, the author pours his vision of problematic restless existence with a full circle in celebration of poetry in all its manifestations through the pages of a book, in the heart of a poet, in a precious perfume bottle. The poetry comes from everything that has a spark of revelation and has a myriad of sparks to reveal to our nose and our skin in an unforgettable lesson in poetry.

The book is intertwined with poetic passion emerging implicitly in several pages of this short and intense collection which immediately highlights an idea that is very dear to the author of the life and poetry, together, as a resistance, as tenacity, as strength to go against the wind with lyrical expressions significantly recurrent.

The poets thoughts allows the words to become immense and tenacious, realizing how to manage a bitter struggle against the clock, with a struggle that finds poetry in his field and his bold hero because only poetry can resist, keep, save the idea that emerges, born from everyday life and lead back to it, avoiding the risk of writing as fixation of the flow of life in an idea or worse in an ideology.

Again, the writer comes to terms with the erosion that life involves, erosion of meaning, of memory, of force, and against this corruption says it will resist, with the observation has more than writing, and is the deepest nature of the poet, who stand still and see, without care to write or the illusion of knowing.

It takes courage, boldness, to go and live on a joy against the wind which also brings us to immerse ourselves in the shadows of everyday life where the word takes on the spiritual colours, a nuance that was also reflected in the texts apparently more prosaic and chronicles, small sagas of his life with a fight that is not consumed immediately but unfolds in space and time, with a strong hope that precisely in the trap of habits there may be joy, redemption, fulfilment, so you have to rely on that time that is the most important space.

Whether we like it or not we live our lives as the path along a road in a series of experiences that we carry out below and then the poetry is only one of these, though not the least important. There you can meet with other visually, but also be participating in our verse, developing concepts and reflections in those who read them end up be inscribed as a footprint, as intangible.

And that's what this new anthology speaks of these footprints that bind the soul and this is expressed in an unusual way, according to a simple complexity, an oxymoron to say that from the outset it is necessary to accept the setting of the author, in a work short, but from consistent content, the occurrence of a real literary, because it includes the inevitable disagreements between the outer and inner reality, but indicates a mystical path that we can all find digging in us to the bottom of the soul.

If we look good, especially if we are abstract for a moment from the contingent, the concept we have of us is mysterious, which is to be discovered and the author in this helps us, giving us a method and an end, in a poetic work in which what needs to be truly observed, it turned, the content is analyzed and is not the meaning of life that sometimes we try and that we miss while we are going to grab it.
