Non Nomen is latin for "no name." Due to the author's anonymity, biographical information is limited to his British/Cypriot nationality. He uses a very distinctive method of writing known as Graphic-verse.

“La plus belle des ruses du diable est de vous persuader qu'il n'existe pas."

("The devil's finest trick is to persuade you that he does not exist.")”
Charles Baudelaire, Paris Spleen

“Much unhappiness has come into the world because of bewilderment and things left unsaid.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

“In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it.”
Ernst Fischer

“Life has but one true charm: the charm of the game. But what if we’re indifferent to whether we win or lose?”
Charles Baudelaire

“We who hold the pen...
and like bricks we use our words...
how stupid of us...
how naive...
to even think for a second...
that the pen was ever mightier than the sword.”
Non Nomen, The Unwords
