About this chapbook

Beyond the Scent of Sorrow delves into the challenges faced by women on a global level. The eucalyptus trees in southwest Portugal
are used as an archetype to symbolically elicit the challenges women face in today's world. Boldly, the poems which are lyrical,
literal, short, and succinct, profess the unkind capabilities of mankind.


Poets and Critics praise Beyond the Scent of Sorrow

"Sweta's poetic voice flows like water smoothing and shaping stones. With great skill she uncovers, sometimes tenderly and other
times more forcefully, the shroud of fog surrounding the feminine archetype... she has created and nurtured a garden, a wordscape,
in which trust and healing can flourish."

--Nick Purdon, author of The Road-shaped Heart



"Sweta Srivastava Vikram holds her work close. Fold it one way, a poem of loss appears. Fold it yet again for a poem of longing.
Her work is as structurally sound as the elements. It soars with anticipation. Vikram reveals lovely and powerful poems that will long linger."

--Doug Mathewson, Editor Blink-Ink
