  1. Fatima Mirza

    I loved the author’s train of thought behind each piece, and I appreciate his choice to not conform to standard prose forms of poetry that excel in today’s literature but rather a classical approach. I enjoyed part1 the most while the tales part appealed to me aswel

  3. Adil Mujtaba

    Unique poetry and ideas in this book. It is difficult to comprehend some poems which are beyond my wisdom level but this book is a piece of art. Hats off to the young writer here!

    Commendable

  5. Tales from the Dragon’s Lair

    As soon as I read the preface, I knew that I was going to enjoy these poems enormously.

    Metamorphosis is an extensive collection of diverse poems that all have in common that they deeply touch your soul. I was thoroughly impressed by the broad range of emotions that are explored and rendered so beautifully, so recognizable, in words. The rawness of some of these emotions is amplified by the author’s perfect command of poetic language. Furthermore, this collection addresses many important societal themes like mental health, gender, and the state of the world.

    The collection is split in three parts: Truths, Tales, and Two Decades. While I loved all three parts, I think my favourite would either be part one or three. Part one is in my opinion the most complicated part, in the sense that the poetic language and form reminded me of some modernist works I read at University. I especially loved Pain, Suffering, Death, and Beauty Standards in this section.

    As the title already reveals, part two explores poetic narratives that also clearly show the author’s historical knowledge. My favourite one was Et Tu Brute, which is of course a clear reference to Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.

    Part three then returns to the more typical poetic format of the poem. The language used in this section is more straightforward and the format more classical than the one used in part one. The poem Metamorphosis, is another gem and concludes the collection.

    Although the poet was only 21 at the time of publication, the maturity of his voice and his poetic creativity is astonishing. I have no doubt that we’ll hear much more from him!

    This book ends in a way that you didn’t expect, or if it opens your mind on subjects you didn’t know about, then the best description for a book like this would be “mind-blowing.
