a beautiful meditation on a subject that has unending depths by a masterful poet.

Sadness is a universal emotion; every person feels it at different points in his or her life. However, there are many different types of sorrow — some positive, and some negative. Some sadness is overwhelmingly bleak, while another kind of sorrow can be classified as bittersweet and can be pleasant to remember.

Author Vasile Munteanu unflinchingly faces the deep emotions that are associated with sadness in his latest collection of poems, tapping into many different themes and emotions all rooted in the overarching theme of sorrow. In “Said and Unsaid,” Munteanu mines the profundity of silence and the volumes it can speak. “Insomnia” speaks to the intensity of solitude in the middle of the night, and the feelings that sleeplessness can evoke. These and the other poems in the volume emphasize the mind’s “need and desire” to overcome itself when faced with sorrow, be it negative or positive.

The Book of Sorrow is a beautiful meditation on a subject that has unending depths by a masterful poet. Author Vasile Munteanu earned his bachelor’s and master’s degree in English from Michigan’s Oakland University, and he earned his Ph.D. in Philosophy, Interpretation and Culture from the State University of New York at Binghamton. A professor of philosophy and literature at the College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas, Munteanu authored many books, including Godmaker, The Book of Aloneness, Chandala, The Unthought, The Book of Intentions, and The Book of Longing.
