So What: New and Selected Poems 1971-2005
DescriptionTaha Muhammad Ali (1931-2011) was a much celebrated Palestinian poet whose work is driven by a storyteller's vivid imagination, disarming humour and unflinching honesty. Born in rural Galilee, Muhammad Ali was left without a home when his village was destroyed during the Arab-Israeli war of 1948. Out of this history of shared loss and survival, he created art of the first order. His poems portray experiences ranging from catastrophe to splendour, all the while preserving an essential human dignity. Poetry Book Society Recommended Translation.
