The Poems of Robin R Rabii is a collection of poems written by the author expressing his emotions about certain political and social subject matters. Based on the cover design, at first, I thought that the poems were going to be about flowers and butterflies, however, soon after reading I realized that it was more of a -statement making –book.
The author uses his poems to address certain matters such as women not being able to drive in Saudia Arabia, or women being owned by men, back in the Middle East. There is profanity used in the content and some even possessed anger and hate.
UN Security Council, women in America, French laws and Alice in Wonderland are just a few topics mentioned in the poems. I did find it refreshing however, it was not the kind of poem book I enjoy reading or would wish to read again, on a nice sunny day.
The layout and the agenda for the book were put together in a nice way and I believe the author had good intentions with bringing up issues that matter in the 21st century.
I believe if you are interested in poetic books that have an edge, then this book is most suitable for you.
