I Am Learning to Live: Poems in Armenian and Russian (Paperback)
Lusine Korekyan's book represents all the poems she has created, starting from a very early age until the present. Most of the illustrations to the book, such as the author's photographs and paintings, are a kind of extension of the poems into other art forms. The poems are organic, alive, part of the atmosphere we all live within. They are the reflection of Lusine's way of learning to live, and most importantly learning to love life in all its expressions as gift from heaven. The emotions and thoughts that unify in feelings become at once a celebration of the breathing, loving, enjoying, and embracing body, while at the same time transforming into a soul's exploration of misery, desperation, and pain. This is the poet's expression of riding the roller coaster of life-the ups and downs, joys and miseries. She invites you to observe the path she has taken, to share her personal experience of her relationship with the world, and to travel along on her journey.
