Product Details


“Darwish’s poetry is an epic effort to transform the lyrics of loss into the indefinitely postponed drama of return.”
—Edward Said

“The most celebrated writer of verse in the Arab world.”
—Adam Shatz, The New York Times

“The translation is very fine . . . It’s a joy to read and among the very best Palestinian literature.”
—Raja Shehadeh, author of Palestinian Walks

“Did as much as anyone to forge a Palestinian national consciousness.”
—Peter Clark, The Guardian

“An exquisitely designed book, enhanced by several of Berger’s evocative drawings … Mural is a spiraling and circuitous poem, alive with swerves and sly twists, moving along corridors that dead-end only to open out unexpectedly into detours and hidden passageways. That single adjective, conspicuous in Darwish’s spare style, presages the very structure of Mural.”
—Eric Ormsby, Bookforum
