My Rivers is a poetic event in four cycles: The Loire, The Spree, The Drina and the Beyond the Rivers. The collection brings together twenty-five poems which utilize different poetic forms, although the style is never overly strict in form, as Šehić always wants this work to be as clear and understandable as possible. Often hard-hitting and even brutal at times, these works rest on the themes of post-war reality and the culture of remembrance in a wider context, along with the tragedy of the Bosnian war seen through larger conflicts and the greater tragedies of the two world wars. The book seeks catharsis, to the extent to which it is possible in a post-conflict society like Bosnia, along with finding solace in the universal themes of intimacy, love, freedom.
