Short Description: The Birth of Illusion (Fullpoint Publishing) is a collection of 61 riveting poems in three sections. The poems are angry, vivid and full of imageries that capture human condition in its many forms. The poet’s style is dynamic as she tries to engage the concept of pain in its many dimensions, even in the context of intimacy. There is emigration and the consequences of war and its victims, there is also some room for love in the third section, where the poet explore the matters of the heart. This long-expected second collection would be well-received.
