Neptune’s Dusk is the transformative interval during which human beings, after being saddened by the coarse realities of life and having to abort the pursuit of their humble desires for love and joy, navigate their minds in the direction of sacrifice and devote themselves to the search for wisdom and the knowledge of the higher forces of nature that govern our lives.

SHE HAS SURRENDERED TO SLUMBER
SHE HAS SURRENDERED TO SLUMBER records the flights of imagination, the intense emotional fluctuations, and the outcomes of the contemplating mind of the author as words crafted with passion, tenderness, and subtlety. These poems, written over a period of roughly three years of the author’s young life, present the enormous changes that his mind goes through within this timeframe. The poems reflect the constant pursuit of romance, embodied by the idea of death and rebirth. From the moment of the arrival of the mysterious vision of an ideal romantic world, the author goes on to record the death of his old beliefs and his rebirth into a new way of seeing life. Thus he engages himself in a quest to know his true self, and goes through tremendous conflict between indefinable rhythm of the desires of his soul and the worldly commotion of reality. With infinitely elongated moments of pleasure, sadness, confusion, depression, hope, and recovery, Tawsif Anam survives to present a brief look into his dreams through the poems in his book. The name of the book, with the significance of slumber as a mystifying state that the author believes to be a connection between our material existence and the vast transcendental world of unknown knowledge, is a tribute to his grandmother. From the time when these poems were first being written to the final moment of its completion, the author witnessed his beloved grandmother, someone to whom he owes the nourishment of his life and his present well-being greatly, drifting from her joyful old age to a state of physical inactivity and coma. Despite her being in a deep slumber, she still breathes life into her grandson, who would forever remain indebted to her for her love, care, support and encouragement.
