Poems for a World of Conceits
First published to the web in 2011, Poems for a World of Conceits by Sohaib Ahmed introduces a collection of the poet's finest works to its audience. Here is a collection of over thirty poems that also mark a break from convention, the rigmarole of popular opinion and widely accepted social beliefs. Chosen from an already larger body of works, Poems for a World of Conceits at once, seeks to find an intimacy with its earlier pieces and then throughout in its more seasoned pieces finding ground for an intensely personal and individual reading experience. All the while, it considers the 'mold' that has long since been created in the world of poetry then challenges it only to know what comes of breaking from that as well. All in all, Poems for a World of Conceits promises to be a lasting memorial in the truly Romantic tradition. In addition, for the reader of these works, it should be noted that from the title of the collection onwards the author implements the conceit: defined as an elaborate or extended metaphor, ruminating upon simultaneously those very things that connect the individual poems and bind them to the 'conceit' of form. That conceit, its origins firmly rooted in the sonnet of the same name, help to lend continuity to the whole and shed an even greater light upon these endeavors, and for the reader or audience intent on knowing the deeper meaning here, gives the body here presented an often deliberate and loosely speaking elaborate picture in words.
