Overview


Poetry. "His lines are witnesses of tremendous density and speed of the more ever powerful NOW in human history. As technology had to adapt to the godhead's voracious needs, so the poets have to eat exactly the same spot with even higher lucidity, more intelligence and compassion to mourn, to understand and to redeem.
