Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Here is reclamation, collective and personal, of an Armenian history in poems of remembrance, affection, tenderness, replenishment. [In his moving poems], Gregory Djanikian does what Joseph Brodsky said the poet should do: begins in elegy and ends in praise.

Eleanor Wilner Gregory Djanikian's poems chart a poetic topography that takes us from the killing fields of the Armenian Genocide in Turkey, then to Egypt and then to the United States--nothing less than a modern epic trajectory. These are poems that move from the elegiac to the philosophical and to the heartfelt comedy of human love. So I Will Till the Ground opens up visions that will stay with you long after you close the book.

Peter Balakian
