Giorgos Lillis' poetic collection In the Dark like a falling star consists of four autonomous sections: fire, ashes, memory is a smashing confession in the dark.
It's about structural elements of a united construction that has all the characteristics of an ambitious poetic composition. The subjects of this work are: beauty and ugliness, excitement and peacefulness, the magnificence of nature and its destruction, the memory of past images and their deterioration within time and the poet’s rage at the vanity of the world.
It is about a book with a dreamlike style that combines the reverberation of ancient tragedies with the suspense of Hitchcock films.
A unique apprehension, dense and vital speech, with lyrical and dramatic tones, from a new poet that has something essential to testify.
