Book of Change

The “Book of Change” is a collection of poems with a focus on the existential questions which face us all, the purpose and meaning of life, the significance of love, and how our passage through this universe might lead us to an understanding of eternity. The poems are in the school of the romantic poets of the 18th and 19th Centuries with use of rhyme and regular stanzas. Accompanying Kyril Calsoyas’ poems are a series of drawings by Raoof Haghighi, The drawings also suggest existential questions for the reader through the use of dissonance and blending of classical and modern techniques.

Judge Johnny Gorman said of Raoof’s winning painting, “It’s very understated and the use of shadows provokes you to ask all sorts of questions: who is she? What is she hoping for? Of all portraits in the competition, this one has got real narrative.”
