How Abraham Abandoned Me

by Bejan Matur - £10.99  Arc Publications (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781906570002 | ISBN 10: 1906570000

This collection covers the broad vision of mankind's history with a story of an individual journey, in the course of which the poet explores the cosmic and the microcosm, the immensities of Time and Space, of becoming and Being.
 
The poems came during a pilgrimage in south-western Anatolia. Matur has created a personalised iconography based on Islamic references and imagery, and she presenting complex ideas with a simplicity of expression that is perfectly mirrored in Ruth Christie's translation.
