“There are maps of Palestine that the politicians won't ever be capable of 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 extraordinary selection of Mahmoud Darwish’s poems and prose meditations is either lyrical and philosophical, wondering and clever, jam-packed with irony and protest and play. “Every appealing poem is an act of resistance.” As consistently, Darwish’s musings on unrest and loss reside on love and humanity; delusion and dream are inseparable from fact. “Truth is apparent as day.” in the course of the ebook, Darwish returns usually to his ongoing and sometimes lighthearted dialog with death.
Mahmoud Darwish (1941–2008) used to be offered 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.

Apart from that, abnormal life appears to be running its normal course. The Devil still boasts of his long quarrel with God.
