ISBN 978-617-7201-69-3

is represented by her several collection of works. Their image-motif system reveals
the dominance of the so-called leader neo-romantic discourse next to which functions
the symbolist and realistic poetics of landscape, personal and social contrasts, as well
as the motif of serving the people in terms of nurturing public spirit of children
through the word.
