Review of Making a Poem by Vihang A. Naik

Making A Poem is a powerful collection of poems that sheds light upon the fascinating writing process and a poet’s personal aesthetics. These pieces are lucid and articulate where Naik displays a confident command over the poetic form to bring his ideas, experiences and observations to life.

The poems that delve into the reality of poetic expression are perhaps the most captivating ones. Their reflexivity results in a most engaging collection of poems.

The aim of the book, Making A Poem is to make the reader familiar with the process of writing poetry, from it’s conception to it’s deliverance. The book is divided into the following sections: ‘Are You Looking for that Poet?’, ‘The Poet as a Young Man’, ‘Making A Poem’, ‘A Poem Comes Alive’ and ‘A Poet’.

One of the delights of Vihang Naik’s poems is that they, both singly and when placed together as part of the whole body of work, demonstrate a string of possibilities in its reach and capacity. They make the readers acutely aware of how language has the potential to truthfully and robustly communicate the writing experience.

Even though many of the poems in this collection are innovative, experimental and probing in terms of style and structure, Naik does not distract himself with enquires into the problems of subjectivity and textuality. He has kept faith in a kind of poetry that can presume to speak of the poet’s life with clarity and with wisdom.

In this way his work taps into the shared experience of other writers and also their common histories, backgrounds and stories. Naik, with his poetry, seeks to render the function of poetry as a vehicle for insight, as a conduit between the individual and his wider readership.

Language and concept, events and memories stimulate his poems and that in itself becomes the theme that he explores giving a layered experience for both the poet and the readers. Naik’s sensitive and understanding approach, together with his physical and imaginative thoughts, produce pieces that are beautiful and delicate but at the same time forceful and eloquent.

Do not miss out on such an opportunity to come across such an amazing book. So just place your order ASAP since the shelves have started to run out of stock already.
