What People are Saying About This

Eleanor Wilner

"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."
