Item description for On the Altar of Greece by Donna J. Gelagotis Lee...

Winner of the Gival Press Poetry Award. Winner of the 2007 Eric Hoffer Book Award: Notable for Art Category. "...the journey of our time at this altar offers us a striking, immense set of views of a world we thought we knew, and still, wonderfully, do know in much richer ways by the end."--Don Berger, contest judge and author of "Quality Hill" and "The Cream-Filled Muse "...Her poems travel both in time and in memory to Greek villages and to Athens, bringing with them the spiky sensibility of a contemporary American woman...."--Molly Peacock "..She knows that to empathize distinguishes the gifted poet from the merely good one, and enacts her compassion through the concreteness of her writing. With that physicality, she brings to life the numinous core of language."--Dean Kostos

Reviews - What do customers think about On the Altar of Greece?

Poetry of pure art  Apr 25, 2007
This work of art is full of imagery and the essence of modern-day Greece. Donna J. Gelagotis Lee blends a bit of classical Greece as we think we know it with a surprising new, exciting and intimate in-depth view of that country today. Time itself is suspended. Each poem is a gem describing the very small and together adding up to a large work of the people, places and evoked emotions she experienced there. Ms. Lee is a new voice on the national scene, looking with haunting clarity, back at her eight years spent in that country. This is a delicious, can't-put-the-book-down read.
A free-verse poetry collection that explores the majesty, venerable history, and wonder of Greece  Mar 4, 2007
Award-winning poet and longtime resident of Greece Donna J. Gelagotis Lee presents On the Altar of Greece, a free-verse poetry collection that explores the majesty, venerable history, and wonder of Greece from an American woman's perspective. Poems contemplate mundane aspects of daily life such as food preparation or the relationship between neighbors, as well as holiday celebrations and the taste of simply experiencing a different way of life. An evocative and memorable tribute. "Remembering You": Gamma, epsilon... / Slowly your name spells itself / to me, my tongue catching the letters / along the contours, bulging through / interior openings that flip the letters / onto their backs. And I have / forgotten what they said to me. / I have forgotten the taste of your alphabet.
