Mythological Monologues : A Poetry Series (Theme Reveal #BlogchatterA2Z #AtoZChallenge 2020))


April is almost here and I am thrilled to reveal the theme of my A to Z Challenge 2020. 

This is the 2nd time I am taking this blogging challenge. In 2018, I experimented with 26 forms of poetry in my poetry series "Letters from the Soul".

My theme for A to Z 2020 is Mythological Monologues - A poetry series.

This year, I will be doing a poetry series on Indian Mythology. I will be giving voice to various characters in Indian mythology such as Ahalya, Shikhandi, Draupadi, Gandhari, Sita, Urmila, Eklavya, Karna and many others. I will be penning down 26 dramatic monologues of 26 iconic characters from Indian mythology. 

Indian mythology has always fascinated me since childhood. Therefore, I decided to give my voice to some of the most beautiful characters in Indian mythology that has stayed with me over the years.  

Every day, on the month of April (except on Sundays), I will be writing one dramatic monologue. Dramatic Monologue is a poetry form that was popularized by the famous Victorian poet, Robert Browning. Although I have earlier written dramatic monologues, it will be exciting to blend mythology with this poetry form. 

I hope you will join me in this thrilling poetic journey on the month of April. Wishing the very best to all the fellow bloggers who will be participating in A to Z 2020.
