The Butterfly's Burden
Mahmoud Darwish, translated by Fady Joudah
Mahmoud Darwish was the poetic voice of the Palestinian people. One of the most acclaimed contemporary poets in the Arab world, he was also a prominent spokesman for human rights who has spent most of his life in exile.
"Like a scientist, Mahmoud Darwish spent his life concocting Palestinian moral identit, though its links to the land, and to the Arabic language and culture, were established long before him. In his poetry he tried to link that identity to a humanist global culture, to pre-Arab and pre-Islamic cultures of the Middle East, and to those details of human life that are beautiful in any culture or place."
"In the brilliant, bilingual poet Jody Joudah, Darwish found a translator capable of rendering in English his unflinching, questing, and above all loving poems."
