About the Book

Survival of the Young Poet is a fascinating work that combines narrative of a novel with poetry. It tells the story of a poet, focusing more on verse than it does on plot and characterization. Written in prose, it is frequently interspersed with verse. The protagonist is the title character, and other characters speak and write to each other in beautiful, flowing poetry. From the legend of human hours to the dim time of struggle lies the strive of aging pain of poets. When the day dies to live no more, that’s when the story begins: the fighting pen of poets and the humiliation of struggle. Survival of the Young Poet portrays untold stories of poets struggling to survive in an unveiling society.
