    One thought on “Fifteen Iraqi Poets”

    1. This book presents one poem each written by 15 Iraqi poets, along with brief bios outlines of accomplishments and struggles for each poet, written by the editor, Ms Mikhail I thought some of these poems were astonishingly powerful, which is why I rated the book so highly, and the commentary certainly will lead the reader to seek out work by these poets Unfortunately, given the grim political situation in Iraq, which has been ongoing for years at least since the time of the British mandate, the [...]

    3. Wonderfully translated collection of strong work by 15 classical and contemporary Iraqi poets Dunya includes biographical details about each of the poets included, situating their work and often including little gems from her own conversations and personal knowledge of them This collection is truly a treasure and I wish it were longer

    6. I m fairly picky about poetry, but I enjoyed this one The repetitive imagery, sense of ambiguity, and personification contribute to its ability to move the reader I couldn t pick a favorite, but the one I typed up below should give you a good sense of the book as a whole God s Palm Tree by Hasab Al Sheikh Ja Afar translated from the Arabic by Rebecca Carol Johnson and Dunya Mikhail.My old robe on you waves in the northChrist like, and the plain taste of your datestaken by the ravens and the wind [...]

    7. Beautiful collection, albeit a bit small, of work together with information about each poet Some beautiful poetry here, this book would serve as an excellent introduction to poets that could otherwise ne easily missed because of a governments silly politics.
