The anthology Poems of Madness is an attempt to recapture the painful moments of the poet's life during his traumatic condition. The philosophical views expressed in a condensed and concise language, a holistic attempt to delve deep into the concept of life. Life-fragmented is life-holistic. Elangovan's aesthetic perception, going very deep into the nuances of living experiences, tries to give the readers some introspection pertaining to the crises of modern life. The anthology is philosophical, perceptional and pervasive. The mind gets confused with clinical clarity with mindfulness of mind.What matters is the perception of mind, since mind is not a matter. Elangovan captures the ‘matterlessness’ of mind in this anthology.
