Fady Joudah has done a stunning translation to Darwish's fine work. It's just beautiful. I'm reading the book over and over since I purchased it, and Darwish's work is just amazing especially in his long poem "a state of siege."
I advice you to read this book if you're interested in poetry in general, because Darwish is a world poet and he represents humans everywhere.
Mahmoud Darwish will forever remain a legend. I purchased this incredible book a couple of months ago. Here I am again, purchasing another one because it's too good. I want to give it to someone who would appreciate it as much as I do. The pieces are a masterpiece and the more you read, the more you realize that "wow", and that's when it hits you right in the face. MD, a genius.
