3.5 maybe because of the translation- some beautiful poetry with poets I hadn't heard of before. I've read other translations of Darwish that I thought were better so I assume the others could have been done better justice as well, but I'm glad I was exposed to them anyway.

This is a collection of poetry by Mahmoud Darwish, Adonis, and Samih al-Qasim-- all who address the loss of Palestine, war, and exile. It is also bilingual in English and Arabic.

Mahmoud Darwish (Arabic: محمود درويش) was a respected Palestinian poet and author who won numerous awards for his literary output and was regarded as the Palestinian national poet. In his work, Palestine became a metaphor for the loss of Eden, birth and resurrection, and the anguish of dispossession and exile.
