About the Book
Immoral Embroidery is an anthology in English in which around 40 poets across the globe have
contributed. The poems in this book scatter light on different perspectives of life as well as the living
standards of human beings. They are well thought, insightful, and well crafted in beautiful language.
Some of the poems are socially so charged that they rightly question the established beliefs in society.
Poems like ‘Treadmill' and ‘Static' and many more that I can't name here, serve this purpose astonishingly. These poems are not unpleasantly harsh in their tone and so they do not seek revenge to advocate the equal maltreatment for the existing brutality, but they present before us a healthy argument to reach towards the betterment of the lives of all existing sexes. Some of the poems are self-exploring. Such poems are woven in soft delicate language. They question self to see where we stand while coping with life during all odds we encounter. These are love poems that echoed in the silence.
They sometimes yell at depressed self and sometimes speak of the cosy feelings of love. These poems
are full of emotions. "The Slough of Despond" and the title poem & Immoral Embroidery are such poems.
We have limited such poems because our main objective is to serve literature as well as society by
availing insightful poetry. We have included poems that speak of the silence of nature. Nature is always
a refuge for a sad heart. It gives us peace and hope that is very much needed in one's life. 'Cascade of Autumn' and 'Night' are such poems that are written so beautifully. The rhythm and the flow of the poems in this anthology won't let you remain untouched. The compositions are so tight, emotions are well-knitted and the language used in the poems is so amazingly striking that I believe this book will keep its readers bound. In all, this book is a blend of different flavors.
