Love in a Time of Belligerence
Regular price $16.00
To understand human history is to recognize the eternal presence of belligerence. Eileen R. Tabios' Love in a Time of Belligerence surfaces a variety of wars and their collateral damage of nature, indigenous culture, pets and infants, democracy, teachers, the poor, even "sex dolls," among others. Such spirals to more losses: innocence, ideals, loyalties, family, and hopes. Love can be an antidote... until it's not. The world presented to Tabios' poetry does not reduce humanity to problem-and-solution - her poetry is one of insistent lucidity, which is an accomplishment on its own when one wants to hide one's eyes from the world.
