| ||Anthi Maroniti|
The poems in The Javelin by Anthi Maroniti trace the difficulty of human communication when all bridges have collapsed and every attempt to rebuild them seems to be fruitless. The poet lays a discreet emphasis on the anxiety that everyday life can cause and the bitter disappointments it can bring in many fields and on many levels.
Maroniti sustains an authentic lyricism in this her fifth collection of verse. Ancient Greek literature is a hidden source of her work, creatively nourishing the language and imagery of the poems.
Gently imposing rhythms and a transparent musicality mark her verse. A female sensitivity soon transcends the bounds of gender to acquire universal dimensions in poems where unadorned, crystallized language conveys a deep sense of the things that surround us and touch us.
