Victims of a Map : A Bilingual Anthology of Arabic Poetry Paperback

Share

Description

Since pre-Islamic days poetry has been the mass art form of the Arabic language.

In modern times poets in the region have had a greater impact on popular culture than novelists, and there can be no doubt that Mahmud Darwish, Samih al-Qasim and Adonis are among the leading poets of the Arab world today.

Victims of a Map presents fifteen translated poems by each poet.

It includes thirteen poems by Darwish never before published in book form, even in Arabic, and a long work by Adonis written during the 1982 siege of Beirut, also published here for the first time.
