Book Review: "Love As We Know It" is a collection of poems written by 104 poets on the theme of love in its greater sense. The poetry collection gives an insight into the various facets of love, describing accurately how love inspires and affects all who are living. I found a wide coverage of topics and one can definitely relate to a few of them. The book can be read from anywhere and it will give the same joy of reading irrespective of where we start from. The poems are mainly in English and a few in Hindi.

What was the manifestation of the poetry in this book? We encounter love in its widely accepted form between lovers. An ode to the past, present, and future love can be found in many poems. Then there is poetry commemorating the love and sacrifice made by our parents. Respect and remembrance being the driving force. I found love on the topics of self-realization, forgiveness and preaching non-violence for non-reciprocation in love. A philosophy we tell ourselves many times but hardly write on. In many poems, I witnessed love being compared to the forces of our moon and stars which provide the perfect ambiance to carry on reading. There is a portrayal of love in our rich historical past as well as love inspiring compassion among living creatures beneath us. Love for the sick, suffering and differently abled people and love teaching us that some dreams are beautiful as it is.

Overall this anthology of poems gives us hope, hope that poetry is unparalleled as a device in manifesting the imagination of a poet. All poets were successful in not only realizing what love truly means but also passing down the knowledge for others to appreciate. The poems were beautifully bonded together in pages of appreciable quality and the book cover leaves you wondering, thinking lots what's in store. It is a must-read for all poetry lovers and anyone who is willing to have an inspirational self-introspection.
