Synopsis: Gregory Djanikian's So I Will Till the Ground, his fifth collection of poetry, confronts the horrors of the Armenian genocide of 1915, and the diaspora that ensued, sending survivors to all parts of the world. By turns sorrowful and redemptive, the poems go on to record the author's boyhood in Egypt, and his eventual emigration to the United States and into a wholly different dulture, and a life, however new, lived always under the haunting shadow of the 1915 cataclysm. "These are poems," Peter Balakian has written, that "chart . . . nothing less than a modern epic trajectory" whose narratives "move from the elegiac to the philosophical and to the heartfelt comedy of human love."
About the Author: GREGORY DJANIKIAN was born in Alexandria, Egypt, of Armenian parentage and came to the United States when he was 8 years old. His four previous collections are The Man in the Middle, Falling Deeply into America, About Distance, and most recently, Years Later. He directs the creative writing program at the University of Pennsylvania.
