Lebanese poet, writer, and critic Henri Zoghaib is a leading cultural figure in the Arab world. His poetry, at once tightly condensed and intensely emotional, has been translated into several languages. This edition provides the first multilingual translation of his work, offering each verse in the original Arabic as well as in English, French, and German. Poems are juxtaposed with illustrations by artist Wajih Nahle, giving readers a book that is both visually stunning and a rare introduction to Arabic poetry.
