THE SERMONIC VERSESby: Narayan Prasad Samal
The Sermonic Verses is a volume of 100 sonnets in English and has four thematic sections, i.e. Life, Living, Love, and Death. The poet has depicted each theme with exotic lucidity, fine imagery, and tickling fluidity in his attempts to answer the endless inquiries of the human mind, such as Is life meaningless? Is pain integral to life? Is love always physical? Is death really the end of life? Are we really different from animals? etc. The poet has personalized the English sonnet form with the characteristic placement of Volta differently in different sonnets, which will give the readers the thrills of emotive twists.
The poet has wisely incorporated the love poems, first, as a necessary complement to the other sonnets and, second, to serve the readers a romantic delicacy, through the sermonic solemnity of the sonneted statements of the volume. The readers are no doubt expected to have some vital takes from the book.
