Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

compiles fifteen poems, each written by a different, prominent twentieth-century Iraqi poet. Selected, with commentary, by award-winning Iraqi-American poet, Dunya Mikhail, this little anthology is the perfect introduction to a glorious literature that traces its roots back to ancient Sumer — a poetry written by those who have lived through a state of continuous wars and massacres, their laments often opening with a plea to their destroyed homeland, "O Iraq."

Synopsis:

A collection of dazzling new, contemporary from Iraq, edited by award-winning Iraqi-American poet Dunya Mikhail

About the Author

Dunya Mikhail was born in Baghdad in 1965 but now lives in Michigan. She is the author Diary of a Wave Outside the Sea (winner of the 2010 Arab American Book Award for poetry) and The War Works Hard (a New York Public Library Best Book of 2005).
