Snakes and Apples
This new collection of Nineb Lamassu focuses on love and romance; and the intimacy enjoyed by two passionate lovers.
At times we meet poems exploring the most intimate aspects of a love relationship, through risqué and erotic language, and at times we come across poems describing the pain of separation and breakups.
No Assyrian poetry has dared to explore love in such a way as Nineb Lamassu has done in this new collection. Thus Snakes and Apples is a groundbreaking work of literature and will remain a reference point for the coming generations of Assyrian poets.
