History in poetry

In this third collection of poems Papadopoulos addresses the historical subject of the Pontic Greek massacre in the 1920s in a series of “sonnet-monologues” that link cinematically to create an imaginative account of people living within this historic context. His own Greek family is of Pontic and Cretan origin, and he traveled the Black Sea while writing these poems. His poems lead the reader into an intimate relationship with this epoch.
