MENUMENU - الكتاب
In the Presence of Absence (En)
By: Darwish, Mahmoud (1941-2008) / Tr: Antoon, Sinan

Language: English


Summary: «Darwish composed this remarkable elegy at the apex of his creativity, but with the full knowledge that his death was imminent. Thinking it might be his final work, he summoned all his poetic genius to create a luminous work that defies categorization. In stunning language, Darwish's self-elegy inhabits a rare space where opposites bleed and blend into each other. Prose and poetry, life and death, home and exile are all sung by the poet and his other... Through these lyrical meditations on love, longing, Palestine, history, friendship, family, and the ongoing conversation between life and death, the poet bids himself his readers a poignant farewell»
