I felt that, actually, these works couldn’t be more relevant for today. Once again we find ourselves in a time of huge unrest — political, social and economic. You know, there’s war and conflict in various parts of the world, we’ve witnessed the Arab Spring over the last couple of years, we’re seeing what’s happening in Syria, and Egypt, and elsewhere on the global map and also closer to home. So it is again, I think, a time when these works have great currency and importance.
