This incident of “opposite swings” serves as a grander metaphor for the themes of this collection of poems: heartbreak, assimilation, isolation, and stark contrast. Here is a young man—a Lebanese immigrant, a devout Believer, a helpless lover—tormented by unrequited love and a foreign, rejecting culture. With tender grace and colliding contrast, Charafeddine’s poems blend the surging tsunamic passion of his broken Middle-Eastern spirit with the tacit craft of the English form. The photographs in the book, which serve to enhance the poems, are equally masterful.
