Mural, Paperback / softback Book

Description

Mahmoud Darwish was the Palestinian national poet. One of the greatest poets of the last half-century,his work evokes the loss of his homeland and is suffused with the pain of dispossession, exile and loss.

His poems also display a brilliant acuity, a passion for and openness to the world and, above all, a deep and abiding humanity.

Here, his close friends John Berger and Rema Hammami present a beautiful new translation of two of Darwish's later works, his long masterpiece Mural, a contemplation of his life and work written following life-threatening surgery, and his last poem, "The Dice Player," which Darwish read in Ramallah a month before his death.

Illustrated with original drawings by John Berger, Mural is a testimony to one of the most important and powerful poets of our age.
