Product Overview

Lidija Cvetkovic's War is not the Season for Figs is an arresting collection of poems, deeply informed by personal experience of recent Balkan conflicts and a sensitivity to place, the nailprints of history, and a personal commitment to the value of testimony. Cvetkovic's poetry has the tautness of focus and the concentration of lyricism at its most pellucid."Strong, resonant, purposeful: these poems don't cajole the reader, they guide and direct the reader with the passion of deep-felt urgency to that place where the present and the past generate sparks off each other. This is where the lyric is reaching us in the twenty-first century."Thomas Shapcott
