Mahmoud Darwish


“There are maps of Palestine that the politicians won't ever be ready to forfeit: the single stored within the thoughts of Palestinian refugees, and that that's drawn by way of Mahmoud Darwish’s poetry.”—Anton Shammas

This awesome selection of Mahmoud Darwish’s poems and prose meditations is either lyrical and philosophical, wondering and clever, choked with irony and protest and play. “Every appealing poem is an act of resistance.” As consistently, Darwish’s musings on unrest and loss stay on love and humanity; fable and dream are inseparable from fact. “Truth is obvious as day.” during the e-book, Darwish returns usually to his ongoing and sometimes lighthearted dialog with death.

Mahmoud Darwish (1941–2008) was once presented the Lannan Prize for Cultural Freedom in 2001. He used to be considered as the voice of the Palestinian humans and one of many maximum poets of our time.
