The voices in this collection come from the deep past when war began, and span the centuries to the present moment, with war still raging
around the globe. We hear the ancient story of how violent killers became heroes and then saints, how the picture of torture became an icon
to be venerated, salvation achieved through the instruments of pain and death. As the poet Joseph Brodsky said, ''Poetry is the only form of
moral insurance that a society has.''
