The book is, to use Baudelaire's words, an invitation to a voyage. The speaker asks the reader to become an explorer, to leave the city and embark upon a journey of self discovery. Although each poem stands alone, the poems work together to describe this quest: they turn into a modern, poetic table, in which speaker, explorer, and reader merge into one. �You may not know it yet, says the speaker in the prologue, a wink at what is to come. �You are just like me." --Book Jacket.
The Poems In Book of the Edge are not overtly political. Some are not political at all. Those that make political statements do so in an understated, allegorical way. Temelkuran' s goal in these poems is to explore the human condition, exposing our weaknesses and our potential. But her insight into, and interpretation of, this human condition are undoubtedly inspired, at least in part, by her socially involved upbringing and her many years of work as a journalist.
