MARIUS SURLEAC agonia.net editor:
Günsel Djemal – her poems search the past, the way back home the memories and probably because of that “home-sweet-home” 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 Günsel 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 “To Be”. Poetry means a lot for her, that’s why she hangs a shard from her soul in each poem. “I am a pen/sharper than the sword”.

Atilla Elüstün – When I read for the first time one of Atilla Elüstün’s poems called “US”, 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 “carpe diem” a perpetual motif – here romance looks like a smooth background and visual effects help his poetry implying an important role for keeping the elements strong together “in the apple of your eyes/had drunk the sea” (“Lonely Summer”). Time stops flowing in his poems and the most representative is the poem “We were prisoners inside our lives” – but this is not so important, when in front of our eyes new world rises.
