Poetry collection in Greenlandic and English
This volume includes the Greenlandic originals and English translations of selections from Aqqaluk Lynge’s poetic output over the course of the last thirty-five years. Speaking from the universal heart and mind, Lynge’s powerful verses rely on strong images drawn from traditional life, the people, and the geography of his beloved Greenland as it moves toward sovereignty.
This book has been translated into French under the title Des veines du cœur au sommet de la pensée in 2012.
