Melody in Exile gives an interpretation of life and soul. S.T. Brant tries to create a sense of Eden using an adaptation of poems and stories. He uses esoteric language and speaks of topics such as moving away from the false illusions of life. This poetry has dark and melancholic tints but a positive attitude toward the search for the truth. Melody in Exile has three parts: it begins with a metaphysical aspect and speaks about topics such as the soul, love, and life. The second part concentrates on Eden and details the ephemeral nature of life. The third part refers to the book title and interprets exile from paradise. In this way, S.T. Brant shares a little of himself, his doubts in difficult moments, his longings, and most importantly, his world vision.
From the moment I saw the image of a work by William Blake on the cover, I knew I had found poetry of great depth. Melody in Exile has well-developed ideas using poetry and stories in the form of myths. In addition, I was pleased that S.T. Brant began with essential topics, such as the soul and the struggle to strengthen it. The narrative is a representation of spiritual life, and through the use of symbolism and allegories, there is much material for reflection. S.T. Brant has a high level of cultural appreciation. The work includes many mythological references and works of great literary poets. I recommend Melody in Exile to an audience with a deep knowledge of poetry and classic literature.
