The book contains the latest and unpublished poems of the author. The poems are mature thematically inasmuch as they reflect the strains and hardships of life. That is why most of them deal with the harsh and painful reality of life in general. They seem to lack the romantic streak often seen in his earlier poems where the persona was infatuated with the pursuit of some desires or dreams. Here he is often found in quest for a meaning of the whole drama of life or (in some poems) the melancholy phase of life after the departure of youth. The loneliness and restlessness characteristic of contemporary society is unmistakably present in the majority of the poems. The language and style is lucid and simple and readers of all categories will relish them.
