Sinopse

Poetry is the quintessence of Arab culture. In this book, one of the foremost Arab poets reinterprets a rich and ancient heritage. He examines the oral tradition of pre-Islamic Arabian poetry, as well as the relationship between Arabic poetry and the Qur’an, and between poetry and thought. Adonis also assesses the challenges of modernism and the impact of western culture on the Arab poetic tradition. Stimulating in their originality, eloquent in their treatment of a wide range of poetry and criticism, these reflections open up fresh perspectives on one of the world’s greatest and least explored literatures. The most intellectually stimulating of several Arab books of unique literary distinction in fine translations ... Translated with uncommon intelligence ... As important a cultural manifesto as any written today.’ Edward Said, Independent on Sunday Adonis’s only prose work available in English is this book. The loss is ours and it is massive, for Adonis is a writer like Neruda or Marquez.’ Geoff Dyer, Independent Introduces the reader to a new way of interpreting all poetry, and to many marvellous words that do not have an English equivalent.’ Arts Letter
