Poems by Daylight
Sarah Ekdawi (Author)
DescriptionSarah Ekdawi grew up in an Anglo-Egyptian household, inspiring in her a lifelong interest in other languages and cultures, including the dialect and literature of her mother’s native Dorset. This first published collection of poetry represents a lengthy engagement, with poetry, as reader, scholar and translator (of Modern Greek). Composed over a twenty-year period, the poems can be read as five ‘conversations’ — the five sections of the collection — with significant others. Poems by Daylight raises questions about identity, intimacy, rejection, loss and gain. It reflects the author’s love of the sea and especially the Dorset coast; her years in Ireland and her walks around the beautiful lake on the campus at MCU Thailand, where she is a visiting teacher. Above all, these poems address the fragility of human love, with all its ‘slips and flaws and missed connections’.
