And here, where forest entrails spill / into winter light, you find me, straying out from the forest's dark memory… Itinerant Hebrew poet David Vogel, Arctic explorer Samuel Hearne and surveyor David Thompson are among the lost voices re-presenced in George Messo's enigmatic new book, Violades & Appledown. Messo's vivid reinvention of history and tradition, passes through explorations of fractured time and the timelessness of memory into a powerfully realized present of ever changing perspectives, mindful of its journey out of the past.

 

George Messo's poetry and translations have been widely published in Europe and the United States. His critical writing appears regularly in World Literature Today, Adirondack Review, and New York Quarterly. He divides his time between Turkey and northern Sweden where he lives with his wife and children.
