Cutting Out Shadows
- Modern Georgian Poetry
The publication is a collection of the author’s new poems, while ‘new’ refers not only to the actual date but to the conceptual novelty. Readers are about to experience unexpected versification and imagery, which ascribe new meanings to familiar nuances. The title suggests that the author invites her readers to travel to the existential layers of meta-texts, to shift from one state of being into another.
Many poems in the book are called ‘songs’, which adds a completely different, in fact an epic pitch to the collection. As a result, the book reads as a story of poetic world with its dangerous games.
