Book Review: Catching Ghosts - Sourya Reddy



Catching Ghosts by Sourya Reddy is a classic book of poems that frames the fragment of a mosaic that is not there, while eyes slide, jumping on each step in a continuous dance. In all this, the words bear a rare voltage in the beloved themes, which are intense, painful and has the soul and inspiration.


We read the poignant sense of entering a time dimension, where the parameters and reference points are more than the everyday, where the myths dear to the author are made more sensitive by the time, the experience, from the illusion of time and life that is delivered in the shade.

Each of the poems has their own life, as if it were a message, with lessons in style, to teach, to guide, as is to be read each of the prose works to better understand the rhythm and structure of the verses, with the placement of words being the strength of the poems which contains the objects from which it springs.

When, instead, becomes a sign of herself, the word becomes self-image, and substance, which is noticeable on paper, in the sensibility that suggests to look continuously in and out of itself, in intimate examination of his essence.

Yet in a roar of silence this slow flow of words slip nostalgic fragments of images, strangled by the cruel time of absence in a lost cerulean sky in the alcove of the night hosts the delusions of dreams. The good in itself is not only the good life, to have to weave in the hope and there is next door just as hope for the rainbow after the rain.

You read it and you look at page after page in a precious treasure of words, which are meticulous translator of reality. Technically, the author has a firm hand, who pay close attention to words to position within it and create continuous internal and external calls making it possible to inject greater drama and effective communication to their statements and depth to the speech.

In some places, the author just creates a sort of hypnotic, mantra, which subconsciously invites the reader to get lost and at the same time to focus absolutely on the text in an interesting work that deserves to be read.
