Visions of dawn…painted through words. A woman’s helplessness revealed through poetic meter…Ideas, frustrations, and contemplation come to life through rhyme and rhythmic cadence. Poetess Lakshmy Menon Chatterjee draws readers into thinking and reacting with her first book, The Fourth Monkey. Reflecting her soul and thoughts through writing, Chatterjee highlights that the emphasis is more on the meanings of the words, than the words themselves.
Every poem in this collection has a purpose, whether it is to speak up against archaic beliefs or unjust practices, contemplate on the complications of relationships or life, or simply appreciate nature’s bounty and the other good things life has to offer.
Delightful and thought-provoking, this latest collection of poems reveals a wisdom-filled world that absorbs readers from the first page.
