Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What is America? For renowned Croatian poet Dubravka Oraic Tolic, it is ""what is born from our dreams without our knowing."" As Columbus' dream of reaching India was interrupted by the discovery of a new land, we too discover unexpected lands in pursuit of our dreams. These new lands are the reality of our hopeful voyages. ""American Scream"" explores the tension between a nation's dream of freedom and the outworking of that dream.

""Palindrome Apocalypse"" explores the history of the twentieth century, beginning with the October Revolution of 1917 and ending with the bombing of Zagreb in 1991-a shadow of apocalypse. Here the exceptional poem is presented side-by-side with the Croatian so the reader can appreciate the amazing palindromic verse.
