AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This collection of poems depicts an individual's perceptions and passions in times of war, and bears witness to the conflicts in the Middle East, "the clash" between the West and Islam, and the ways in which a person's ideals, passions and language are affected by violent political and religious conflicts.'
