Book GroupsI belong to different writing groups and I’m interested in visiting writing or reading groups at any time. Since I write poetry and fiction you can find below a list of questions that would help in the discussion of your group. These questions are intended to guide to a discussion for groups reading Exiliana. I'm hopeful that poetry will take a better place in the podium as it did in the past. Exiliana discussion questions:
- Some of the poems present or are presented with two voices. Is this dichotomy effective to what the book represent?
- Is the theme of exile the most important in the book?
- War and love are underlying themes in this first book? How and why the author explore these themes?
