Book Description

Nelsuo ‘Il tempo dellacittà e altrepoesie’, un’antologia di poesie intuitive e filosofiche, suddivise in seisezioni, Vihang A. Naik gettalucesulla vita di unacittà, in tutte le sue sfumature di gloria e miseria. ‘Canto d’amore di un viaggiatore’ è unasorta di diario di viaggiointeriore, ‘Uominiriflessi’ descrivealtrechimeredellacittà, abitata da personecapricciose come l’incedere di un granchio o come icolori di un camaleonte. ‘Ilsentierodellasaggezza’ è l’iniziodellameditazione e dellaconoscenza. ‘Sulla riva’ registrailsenso di futilità del poeta, la memoria, ildolore, l’esilio e l’alienazionesullarivadella vita. Il titolo di quest’antologia è richiamato dal titolodell’ultimadelleseisezioni, in cui la cittàsidispiega come un mercato, un paradisodeiperdenti e un terreno fertile per ilcambiamento, osservato la sera, la notte, al chiaro di luna e attraversonebbia e foschia.

La poesiaintitolata ‘Autoritratto’ inizia con undiagramma, seguito da alcunepaginebianche, e si conclude con quattro parole…qui ilpoetaimmagina un momentoepifanico, la suaveranaturascopertaquandosisveglia per vedersi ‘svelatooltreilpensiero’. La rivelazione è preceduta da cinquepaginevuote. L’epifaniaineffabiledell’ambiguità, chesuggerisce la scoperta di unSétrascendente, al di là di ognipensiero e linguaggio, o puòsuggerire la scoperta di un’Assenza al di là del pensieroumano e dellaparola.
