Book Summary:

Christina Strigas takes you on a ride through the Greek celebrations and devastations of life, love, loss, song, and death. Using the underlying theme of Metaxa, the popular Greek amber spirit, Strigas explores through memory, events, and narratives, poems that dissect human nature. These are dark poems, written with a combination of stream of consciousness, evoking the confessional poets of our time. With nuances, imagery and crystal prose, these narrative poems ensure the absolute doubt yet the certainty of the power of love and death combined. How can love survive death?

Crossing boundaries and languages, and living in a culturally vibrant city,  such as Montreal, Strigas utilizes the images of her city, and culture to describe her personal relationships with people, strangers, and loved ones. Fresh poems, raw and honest poems, that also focus on the stardom and fall of technology and the modern poet; these poems also touch upon the reality of our modern world and the exuberant power of technology and its toxicity. 

Taking us through childhood moments and adult trauma, Love & Metaxa is a poetry book that was written with wise and engaging wisdom. The reader can easily be drawn into Strigas’ universe and feel the world she lives in, as well as understand how it feels to be an immigrant’s daughter. She takes us on a trip into her microcosm of fiction and reality. 

Love & Metaxa is a poetry collection that features a unique voice who has uncommon stories to tell
