By M. I. Quandour
In the scenes of Circassian existence, Quandour skillfully combines the customarily difficult-to-understand customs of the Circassians with touching, human discussion that brings them to existence in a very relocating manner. Quandour’s portrayal of the Russians is shiny and extensive. whereas he describes (some) historic figures as brutal and sometimes inhuman instruments of Russian imperialism, different Russians are proven being affected by their consciences because the deportations of Circassia progresses.
By Dan Lukiv
An excerpt, a poem in keeping with Esther bankruptcy five
A (thorny) burnet and caper,
Acanthus, field- and hawthorn,
A jogging resource of injury,
With thistle fingers, and thorns
For hair upon his palms and legs
As if he have been a creature before
Men breathed, just like the many
Frozen in time in rock layers
That little chisels chip away at.
How abnormal his hands look,
Reaching for flesh to embrace,
How atypical the protrusions of round
And cylindrical heads upon his scalp,
That bloom into tender, silky white,
Yellow and red plant life that
Reflect goodness yet flip brown
And die. Adam came across the likes of you
Outside Eden secure via cherubs
And the lethal flaming sword.
Haman the bush, the hedge, good
Food for camels, asses, and goats,
See, there you pass, rolling along
The howling wilderness,
