Der-Hovanessian finds, in her Armenian culture and the genocide of 1915, a terrible and wonderful heritage. With her lyrical New England gifts and her American Armenian life, she makes poetry that is both personal and historical, which is to say she has fused song to bronze, a feat very few poets coming from a dual culture have dared or sustained.
DIANA DER-HOVANESSIAN is the author of twenty-two books of poetry and translations and has received numerous awards for her work from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Poetry Society of America, and PEN-Columbia Translation Center, among others.

Editorial Reviews

"Der-Hovanessian has, to be sure, a wonderful, even fearful subject; but knowing what to make of that, how to make it art, is another and rarer matter." - James Merrill
