Abstract:

"THE GRAVEYARD OF FALLEN MONUMENTS is a personal history of the author's humanity. Comprising over a quarter century's work of poems, from a memoir-in-verse of a near fatal ascent of Iran's mythic Mount Damavand to reflections on the current disasters in the Middle East and Southwest Asia, this book is both a personal and a political statement. While the focus is often on personal, often incredible experience, Liotta never moves far from the issue of family--especially concerns for the future of his daughter, Gaia. In a larger sense, of course, this book is finally an expression for the "larger" Gaia, the earth itself, and mother of us all."--Amazon.com.
