This Intimate War

This Intimate War

By Robyn Rowland



It began with the Battle of Çanakkale. It was hand-to-hand killing, the physical closeness of its soldiers unmasking the depersonalisation of the propaganda of war. It was shocking in its violence and its loss. This Intimate War Gallipoli/Çanakkale 1915 Içli Disli Bir Savas: Gelibolu/Çanakkale 1915 is a book of poems reflecting the experiences of Australian, Irish and Turkish men and women during the Çanakkale/ Gallipoli campaigns. Robyn Rowlands poetry is known for its honesty of feeling, and its emotional impact. This book is a moving and intimate portrait of two countries at war, while being embedded in an accurate historical context. It is bi-lingual for readers and audiences who are Turkish or English speaking. This is an essential contribution to the literature on Gallipoli, none of which is currently being produced in poetic form.
