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.
This is the third edition of Nineb Lamassu's second collection, which is now published under the new title of '470'.
The first edition was published in Sydney Australia in 2013; in which the original Assyrian poems were translated into English and published in a single bound. The second edition was published at the same year in Nohadra, Iraq; this time the edition inluded the Arabic translation of the poems along with the original text and the English translations.
This third edition combines the original Assyrian poems together with their Arabic and English translations, along with a new preface and the addition of a new poem especirally for this third edition.
Thus making the collection in Assyrian, Arabic and English available for the first time oputside of Iraq.
