Poetic Pearls


Due to be released in the first quarter of 2018. (No release date set yet).


“Through The Darkness, With Love by Sandeep N. Tripathi (Volume 1 – 3rd Edition) is an accomplished volume of poetry by an author well versed in and comfortable with his chosen craft. Making extensive use of acrostic techniques along with verses using assonance and consonance to marry the vowel sounds, he has crafted a polished collection of verse. As one would expect, the subject matter is mostly about love and loss in all their sublime or painful manifestations. The joy of finding love, the despair when love fails, the bitterness of losing a loved one, and the gnawing envy of a long hoped-for partner finding love with another.

Using a variety of literary devices, Sandeep N. Tripathi has produced a volume of intricate and sometimes complex poetry. Through The Darkness, With Love demonstrates his skill with words as he opens his heart, allowing his feelings to cascade onto the page in a stream of poignant verse. Though the true meaning can sometimes be playfully misleading (I am thinking of the poem Me And My Baby) the poetry is clear and accessible. A heartfelt, often thought provoking work with much to recommend it, but at the end I am left wondering who is Penelope?”

“In life, growth is imminent. And, growth without change, is unthinkable. And, to make the unthinkable thinkable, new roads need to be carved out by way of old ones. The old stands tall and firm and befriends the new to fall into place, with refined maturity and greater understanding and cultured admiration. It’s simply pure Magic.” — Sandeep N. Tripathi
