Veils of Darkness

A collection of short, unembellished neo-classical poems that address
some important aspects of human life in o universal fashion


Mohammed Abdul Jawad


Reading through the collection of poems 'Veils of Darkness' one wishes that one knew more about the poet than he is a Secunderabadee and a non-academic.

Short, unembellished, almost stark in their purity (no metaphor, no simile to speak of), the poems collected here address some important aspects of human life in a universal fashion. Here man is pitted against the devil, the two often changing roles. So the questions of good versus evil, light versus darkness, virtue versus calumny—all those much-maligned binarities—are once again raised. 

Simplicity, honesty, straight-forwardness, a lack of self-awareness—these are some of the characteristics that have gone into the making of these poems. Ezra Pound who advised young writers to shun the abstract and embrace the concrete images also said that honesty is a kind of intelligence. And there is a plenty of that intelligence in the poems of Abdul Jawad.

Both thematically and stylistically Abdul Jawad’s poems sound neo-classical. They take us to a world that we have left behind, that is to say they make us look at our own world from a different perspective. For a generation tired of modernist discourse this kind of writing should be a welcome change.
