– DUE TO APPEAR IN 2023 –
The Blood Lions are a dynasty who have stalked through time, as princes, tobacco traders, knights, engineers and archaeologist. They have changed history across continents, reaching Brazil, Egypt, Japan, Greece, the UK and beyond.
But their cradle is Armenia, and it is from this mountainous homeland that centuries of scions have left their mark on literature. As curators and writers, the Blood Lions have gathered an extraordinary collection of poetry tracing life, death and the bittersweet moments that define us.
ee Cummings, Shakespeare, Raffi, Levon, Terian, Rilke, Verlaine, Neruda, Whitman, Poe and Angelou all feature, among many others, in this remarkable anthology.
“Their song vibrates
Through the voice of the wood
Beats in the heart of each leaf
Their chords sing deep
In the dark of the sea
Roars in the eye of each wave
