Green Integer Books #37: Fugitive Suns: Selected Poetryby Andree Chedid
Synopses & Reviews
Poetry. The poems of this volume, a bilingual edition, appear as Chedid's first English-language collection of poetry, selected from her entire career, including works from 1949 to 1995. With over twenty-six books of poetry, ten novels, four collections of short-stories, and various books of theater, film, essays, and children's works, Egyptian born Chedid is one of the most noted authors of our time. Though exposed to a wide range of cultural experiences, speaking French, English, and Arabic in her youth, Chedid has felt most at home in Paris. While her fictions are firmly rooted in emotions and images from the Middle East, she has described her poetry as being free of time and place, having no geographical boundaries, and belonging to all lands. Andree Chedid is also the author of THE MULTIPLE CHILD, a work of fiction available from SPD.
The first major collection of poetry published in English by the noted French/Egyptian novelist and poet, Andrée Chedid.
