Introduction – Editorial Staff of “ATUNIS”
 
 
 
***
Atunis Anthology – 2022 experiences its fifth anniversary and certainly comes as the input and novelty of the whole contemporary spirit of postmodern poetry today.
 
Why was it considered a calendar publication a year ago?
 
Therefore are the creators the messengers of what will come tomorrow, the sensibility and the mosaic of another season, the sudden silence and explosion at the extreme limits, the meditations and emotions which overstep the present.
Writing is the same as traveling through the infinity of souls, while reflecting on it is the same as touching and feeling the highest levels of your breath.
Let’s imagine for a while the disciples of the written word, looking at the view of today’s world through their candle and understand and believe as well that our whole morphosis is just a vision born in the eyes of the brain and hidden sources continuing the everlasting journey of universal’s forms and shapes.
 
Editor in Chief: Agron Shele
 
 
Poets and their worldviews
 
The world of most poets is a microcosm in itself, touching the ends of existence. You even can speak of a microcosm in a grain of sand. The amount of poems written by poets does not play a decisive role, but after years of intensive work many often put together a whole oeuvre. In addition to collections of poetry also novels, stories, essays, which give you a good insight into the content, writing style, and themes of each poet.
We must be extremely grateful to translators, as without translations it would not be possible to become acquainted with the work of a wide variety of poets from various countries, each bringing their own personal and individual aspects, culture and history into their work.
As a publisher, I am very pleased to see that the torch is being passed on from generation to generation and that more and more poems, however different they may be, are linked to other poems from other regions, as well as connections are found with other artistic expressions: painting and sculpture – visual poems -, music, dance, and all other forms. They share something in common: the source.
In these rapidly changing times, really in every area, it is not always easy for publishers to determine what they can and want to edit, especially now that so many digital possibilities, e books, e magazines, exist and paper publications seem less important. Yet there are many people outside poets themselves, including the readers, who hold the book’s existence very seriously. I am one of them too. A book is tangible, you can easily browse through a book, a book is a precious asset. Especially when it concerns an anthology of world poetry, it is a gigantic enjoyment to taking notice of all those wonderful poems at your leisure and at a convenient time.
You can put the book in a bag, it travels with you to all conceivable places, a village, a big city, on holidays in a vacation house, on the train, along the beach, in a forest area, on an endless plain with a view of flat landscapes or high mountains.
A poetry book feels at home everywhere.

Poetry and Atunis
 
The word Poetry derives from a Greek word poesies, which means in a “making”. Poetry is a unique art of literacy, but it doesn’t have a clear definition of what it is. It is said that poetry uses a fictional plot, a specialized language, and it is written in a special form (style). When writing poems, authors try to express their thoughts in less space using that “specialized language”, not compare to novels and short stories that use much more space.
Poetry is an ancient art of literacy, before people use to carve poetry in the caves, and that is known to exist long before. There are many poets, and uncountable written poems thought the time, but there isn’t a clear definition of what poetry is. Although, many poets have their “own” definition of poetry. For example Paul Engle definition of poetry is:  “Poetry is boned with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words” (Poetry America, 2009) by Paul Engle. Another quote by Aristotle: “Poetry is more philosophical and of higher value than history; for poetry tends to express the universal, history the particular” (Poetry America, 2009).
Even though it is difficult to define poetry, most people are able to recognize it when they see it. It is worth remembering that poetry especially in the form of the song is one of the oldest forms of artistic expression, it is much older than prose and is seems to originate in a human impulse that reached for expression in joy, grief, doubt, hope, loneliness, love, etc. For example, the National Anthems are poems, that are turned into songs or the Anthem that express so much feeling, about joy, victory of being proud of their heroes and their Nation.
Poetry expresses complex meanings & feelings in compact forms. To understand the multiple meanings the poet wanted to express, you should examine all words & phrases in the lines from different aspects Atunis collects poetry that have greatly influenced the world. Written by poets and critics from a wide range of historical, cultural, and aesthetic perspectives, the atunis anthology addresses the purpose of poetry, the possibilities of language, and the role of the poets in the world.
