My tongue is splintered into signs
half of me hardly knows.
—from 'Nicosia Journal'

A scrupulous and gifted writer, Christodoulos Makris is a poet of language over territory, a poet of semblance over culture.
3am Magazine

I was knocked out by the skill of this writer
—Nuala Ní Chonchúir

Poems that reveal inner prepossessions and fiery confrontations to self, and country [...] charged with desire and a powerful will [...]  an instinctive sense of brooding irony.
—Melissa Lee-Houghton
