Entrances" is the second collection by poet and translator, George Messo. The poems are heavily influenced by his years living in Turkey and they open up new worlds for the Anglo-American reader: lyric meditations on the Other, not travelogues. As Peter Didsbury said of this volume in manuscript: "There's a lovely spaciousness and sense of things and persons held in air. It seems to me that Messo is somehow bringing a whole region and set of cultures back into the European sphere. Any book which so beautifully invents for us the Choruh River and eleventh-century Georgia is OK by me.
