Description

The poignancy of remembered happiness, the struggle to keep weariness at bay and go on living when a loved one is dead, these are among Marilyn Noronha’s themes in her first book Different Faces. A feisty humour is part of the strategy of survival. At other times, there is the sense of involvement in the wider world of suffering and violent death.

Different Faces is an encouraging first book by a poet who has worked long and hard at her craft. Some of the short, elegiac poems are particularly memorable because grief is so economically handled.

Marilyn Noronha is part of the Poetry Circle in Mumbai and has read her work to appreciative audiences. Readers, even those wary of poetry, will find the poems not just accessible but relevant to their lives.

REVIEWS

A feisty humour is part of the strategy of survival. Some of the short, elegiac poems are particularly memorable because grief is so economically handled. Readers, even those wary of poetry, will find the poems not just accessible but relevant to their lives.
-Eunice de Souza

The poems are extremely readable; their innate rhythms and simple, direct observations draw the reader and listener through layers of complex emotions, so that each reading strikes a different chord.
-Aloo Heerjibehedin
Teacher of drama and theatre person
