Black Rose; Dying
anything less than powerful is making a woefulunderstatement...In his striking new collection of poetry, author Edward Val takes thereader deep into the heart and mind of a soldier who has not only seen theextreme pain, loss, and unspeakable horrors of war – but he’s lived to tell aboutit. Composed during his two-year deployment in Iraq, Val’s moving opus servesas a stirring testament to the indomitable strength and resilience of the humanspirit.Most impressive about
Black Rose; Dying
is the versatility that Val displaysin chronicling the depths of his wartime experience. Many soldiers may be ableto expound on similar topics as the ones that Val covers, but few would be ableto do so in such arresting, compelling fashion. Whether employing the catchinessof end rhyme or the subtle profundity of haiku and senryu, Val ensures that thereader feels the full brunt of his musings – just as he experienced the real lifeevents that inspired them. By styling his pieces so, Val lends his writings themuch needed – and much appreciated – genuine authenticity that separates hiscollection from a garden variety recollection of life in the time of war.
