Qabbani, who had spent much of his life as a diplomat and ardent Arab nationalist, also spent much of his lif. In his obituary to the celebrated Syrian poet Nizar Qabbani, published a few days after his death in May 1998, Adel Darwish writes that for Qabbani, national liberation was meaningless without sexual liberation. Qabbani, who had spent much of his life as a diplomat and ardent Arab nationalist, also spent much of his life as a romantic in more conventional terms, and through verse he brought his world and its muses into vivid, living color.

Stunning, surprising love poems! (Categories provided are suited to novels, so translate for love poems). I'm officiating a wedding that will have Nizar's poetry in the ceremony, so that motivated my purchase, but what a find. Simple, deep, intimate, and surprising lines to describe love.

I had previously ordered a book "Entering the Sea:The Erotic and other poetry of Nizar Qabbani" and didnt realize that this is more of his work, the names were spelled differently(Where were my eyes that day?) but really, I was pleased to have it, because it provided me with even more of his beautiful poetry to enjoy.The love that pours out of these words is amazing,I can only wish that someone loved me enough to write words like this with such heat and intensity of feelings!
So do yourself a favor and read this book.You may need potholders though.....some of it can get rather warm! :)

A gorgeous book! My Arab boyfriend loved it and he said the translation keeps the rhythm of the poetry while trying to convey the true essence of the poem in Arabic which is hard to do!

I love Nizar Gabbani for a number of reasons. Really, he deserves a great deal of respect for his skills and his courage as a poet. He could explain love in such simple yet meaningful ways. It's simple enough even my basic Arabic skills are enough to comprehend it. I did have some trouble reading the Arabic in this book because they use his actual handwriting and not typed script, but it's a learning experience. I pick up this book often.

Nizar Kabbani's poetry is simple and elegant. He explores the themes of love, romanticism, seduction, idealism and feminism in his work. Known as having been a Syrian diplomat and poet, he remains one of the most revered contemporary poets in the Arab world.

I greatly admire Nizar Kabbani's work and am heartened to have such a treasury of his work at my fingertips. The poems are presented both in hand-written Arabic on one page as well as in translated English on the other, which is very helpful to me as a student of Arabic. Nizar Kabbani viewed the treatment of women and sexuality in general in the Arab world as key to social liberation and his poems reflect this view.
Berenn
Nizar's poetry has already withstood the test of time, and for a reason. He's one of the best love poets ever, and if you're thinking about whether or not to read him, just do it.
Regarding this specific book, it's a great collection of love poems that are better translated that I would have thought possible! I'm a native Arabic speaker, but I speak English better, and I wanted the English just as a reference in case I didn't know an Arabic word. The English poems retain most of the beauty, or rather convey the beauty in a new way.
I'm already planning on gifting this item to introduce a few people to Nizar.
Update: I have no idea why this has doubled in price in the last few yrs. It's still reasonably priced at 16-17 at other bookstores, including Barnes and Noble.
