Poems (Vol. 1): An Ode to Poetry is a collection of fifteen poems including a dramatic monologue, an ode, a haiku, some narrative poems, and a ballad. These forms of poetry are combined with the usual subjects of poems – these being a romance, society, wildlife, nature, history, and life in general. As the title suggests, this collection is an ode to the work of poets who have enriched literature – predominantly English literature – with their effervescent and enthralling writing. Therefore, the likes of William Shakespeare, John Keats, William Wordsworth, T.S. Eliot, Wilfred Owen, and the peerless Gulzar are the inspirations behind this work. The fifteen poems herein are written expressly for the lovers of poetry to sink their teeth into. This book, therefore, offers a lot to literary purists while also being engaging and interesting for casual readers with different, varied tastes; in essence, a happy introduction for beginners, and a form of reverence for those initiated into the canon.
