Book Description

October 1, 2012 1550716158 978-1550716153 1st edition
Habibi, the love poems of the Moroccan poet Alim Maghrebi, is the latest in a series of David Solway’s poetic “translations,” dating from Andreas Karavis’ Saracen Island and including Nesmine Rifat’s Pallikari, Rhys Savarin’s Reaching for Clear, Bartholomew the Englishman’s The Properties of Things, and Dov Ben-Zamir’sNew Wine, Old Bottles, the latter still in manuscript. These are what Solway calls his “ostensibles,” poetic voices and artifacts which he regards as constituting an extended trope or metaphor of the desire for transformation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

I have enjoyed David Solway’s poems for decades. Here, as always, Solway writes with a Gravesian dash and brio, taking (and giving) pleasure in a fine vocabulary, a gift for surprising figures, and a striking breadth of reference. – Richard Wilbur

This translation is beautiful. All poems express the beauty of this world as seen by Moroccan poet Alim Maghrebi. Would like to seem more of his poetry translated.
