A chapbook of twenty verses, stunningly illustrated by painter Joyeeta Bose. In Solitary Stillness we are shown what it is to shun the world for one’s personal pleasure and leisure. A poet especially needs quiet moments simply to reflect. As Sengupta noted in a recent interview, “poets are self-motivated souls.” These poems unite culture and language in a variety of word games and descriptive allusion. After the reading of the collection, you are buoyantly left with a feeling of dream and wish to return to the womb of the book.
