Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection has been chosen by UNESCO for their Collection of Representative Works. Salah Stetie has published forty books and was awarded Le Grand Prix de la Francophonie in 1995. In his exquisite, soberly beautiful poems, Western culture merges with Oriental and Arabic traditions. His writing has a swirling metaphysical dimension, which never ceases to root itself in earthy, sensuous experience. His poems evoke a deep, half-questioning, half-serene meditation of all that is "hanging on the other side of being" — "the great soft lion's track in the invisible" — which still captures the swarming particularities of our daily presence in the world.
