By Diana Der-Hovanessian
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 to sustained. In this bind up, the poems that are included are, "Salt", "How To Become An Armenian", and "Secret Of Life".
