Feb 6 - Semeen Ali's new book of poetry 'Transitions'

Transitions, a book of poems by Semeen Ali was published from Writers Workshop, Kolkata in August, 2014. This is her fourth collection of poems.


The poems deal with a sense of loss and a transitory state of mind as it tries to come out of the pendulum-like emotions that engulf it. There is a new found freedom when looking back at the past to create a “parallel world” which is better than reality. The sense of loss is not only restricted to the passing away of a dear one; the poems also describe crumbling relationships. The fleeting, transitory nature of relationships and the fragility that threatens them has been dealt with in this work.
