MARIUS SURLEAC agonia.net editor:
GĂźnsel Djemal â her poems search the past, the way back home the memories and probably because of that âhome-sweet-homeâ 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 GĂźnsel 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 âTo Beâ. Poetry means a lot for her, thatâs why she hangs a shard from her soul in each poem. âI am a pen/sharper than the swordâ.
MARIUS SURLEAC agonia.net editor
Atilla ElĂźstĂźn â When I read for the first time one of Atilla ElĂźstĂźnâs poems called âUSâ, 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 âcarpe diemâ 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 âin the apple of your eyes/had drunk the seaâ (âLonely Summerâ). Time stops flowing in his poems and the most representative is the poem âWe were prisoners inside our livesâ â but this is not so important, when in front of our eyes new world rises.
