Utsa Seth’s poems are bold and exploratory. They seek newer worlds and navigate delicately between doubt and certainty, beauty and longing, joy and isolation. Utsa has a confident, mature voice that belies her youth. Her poems are a space for healing, for sorting out the knots in the fine tangled strands of our emotions.
These are poems that are alive and breathing. The voice of the poet speaks directly to the reader, helping them get in touch with their own unsorted feelings.
Utsa’s expression is unpretentious and direct. She doesn’t write to impress and therein lies the quiet power of these poems.
