Rooms and Fields: Dramatic Monologues from the War in Bosnia
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
Beschreibung"These poems are full of surprises: the gods talk; ancient authors talk; the dictionary talks; very memorably, the bridge over the Drina River, roughly between Bosnia and Serbia, speaks two haunting poems. The dead talk, wolves talk, a teacher talks, with a chorus, Sometimes I like to imagine this long poem being staged. What the music would be! Who would do the sets! What languages..., Rooms and Fields is history not simply documented and explored but also deeply felt. A poetic inquiry, its concerns are uniquely and fundamentally intimate. Compassion drives this collection of spare and gracious poems.
