A Palestinian poet, Ibrahim Nasrallah is among the foremost poets of his generation. In this collection, Nasrallah describes the suffering of the Palestinians not through a personal lens, but through a universal context. He observes life with a natural human tendency toward a love that can heal, transcend, and transform the pain and sorrow of human experience. "Taste" There's the dewy taste of seas and clouds in the dust, the taste of the expanse and the rain, of plains, mountains, humans, of feminity, love, and intrepid oranges, of childhood and saffron, of living in my mother's heart, of travel, and of your soul and mine. But my beloved trees steal toward the source to taste it in solitude, before any of us

Reviews

"The poet Ibrahim Nasrallah has absorbed both the 'bloody sorrow' of humanity and 'the steady radiance / at the heart of the world,' that bi-level core of experience which cannot be separated from the sociopolitical. His poems manifest a bountiful and beautiful poetics, and they run a fever. They get under your skin. This is poetry to be read and reread for how it feels"-Marvin Bell |"A tragicomic quotidian essence pervades these poems, and palpable echoes of Zbigniew Herbert's words are easily heard. Nasrallah's poems are a welcome translation. They expand and shape our vision of Palestinian poetry's rightful place in world literature."-Fady Joudah
