GĂĽnsel Djemal and Atilla ElĂĽstĂĽn have published their first poetry books in Istanbul-Turkey, December 2009 the books published in Turkish and in English as bilingual edition by IGUS publishers. The name of her Book is â€śDilimin Dokunuşuâ€ť â€śTouch of my tongueâ€ť and the name of his book is â€śYoktur Aşkın Ortasıâ€ť â€śThere isnâ€™t a centre of loveâ€ť.
In April she was invited to Tirana-Albania for the Third International Symposium â€śPoetic Muse PEGASIâ€ť â€śTHE MAGIC OF TRANSLATIONâ€ť APRIL 8-11 2010. She is a holder of 2 honorary prizes one for her own book and the other for translation of her own poems and Mr Atilla ElĂĽstĂĽnâ€™s poems which she has introduced to www.agonia.net.

MARIUS SURLEAC agonia.net editor:
GĂĽnsel Djemal â€“ her poems search the past, the way back home the memories and probably because of that â€śhome-sweet-homeâ€ť behaviour is reflected, where family is the core of a continuously developing universe, children are a basic point and all these help her to go further leaving behind some beautiful poems written especially with the heart. As well GĂĽnsel brings within the lines the urban perspective, writes down the lines with such a passion that romance is experienced as an arcs poetica and the most symbolic poem is â€śTo Beâ€ť. Poetry means a lot for her, thatâ€™s why she hangs a shard from her soul in each poem. â€śI am a pen/sharper than the swordâ€ť.

Atilla ElĂĽstĂĽn â€“ When I read for the first time one of Atilla ElĂĽstĂĽnâ€™s poems called â€śUSâ€ť, a sort of Mediterranean air crossed like a mid-breeze. His poems have an epic tendency and all of them push the reader across a joyful world having â€ścarpe diemâ€ť a perpetual motif â€“ here romance looks like a smooth background and visual effects help his poetry implying an important role for keeping the elements strong together â€śin the apple of your eyes/had drunk the seaâ€ť (â€śLonely Summerâ€ť). Time stops flowing in his poems and the most representative is the poem â€śWe were prisoners inside our livesâ€ť â€“ but this is not so important, when in front of our eyes new world rises.
