From Sarajevo with Sorrow PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

From Sarajevo with Sorrow free pdf When Sprinting from the Graveyard was published in 1997, Goran Simic's poems were severely altered out of the fear that they might offend "Western sensibilities." These newly translated poems restore all that is offensive, despairing and necessary to our understanding of war by capturing the poems' original power and humanity. In addition, this collection contains both previously unpublished poems, written "under the candlelight" of the siege, and new poems returning to the sniper's alleys and bunkers of Sarajevo. From Sarajevo, With Sorrow is a disturbingly resonant, timely and important collection.
