Reviews

"... faithfully renders Milanovi?'s long lines, preserves where possible his alliterative patterns, and carefully selects the English words that function as powerful signs throughout the volume. ... Despite the recent tragic history of Yugoslavia and Serbia, this fine collection embodies hope." -- Prof. Michele Levy, North Carolina A&T University

"... a richly engaging and morally challenging collection of poems whose sweep of image, deeply abiding emotions, and generously liberal regard for myth and magic make this an important new collection of poets" -- Prof. Bruce Weigl, Lorain County Community College, Lorain, Ohio
