Poems of Armenian War and Peace
Synopsis of the book
Bitter-sweet imagery of food, drink, the stark terrain and the iconography of Armenia, where Europe meets Asia and Christianity meets Islam, runs through the poems, which are concerned with love, hate, suffering and national identity, issues far wider than the Armenian experience. Most of the work is universal and can be read in the context of any nation that has survided genocide. And the consequences of genocide are juxtaposed with current issues such as environmental disbalances , dehumanising use of artificial intelligence or data science.
" Highly recommended".
James Sheard, Poet
