About this product
- DescriptionThe Story of a People is the sixth in a series of volumes on Palestinian writers who compel into unity the contradictions of being Israeli citizens as well as sons and daughters of the Palestinian people. This volume contains the works of forty poets, and offers a variety of themes, styles, contexts, imagery, tones, and language. The poets, arranged alphabetically, depict a faithful picture of the various aspects of Arab life among what is called, paradoxically, Israeli-Palestinian societies. They present new arenas where opposing factors harmoniously join to struggle for dignity, freedom, and justice. Readers of this volume will encounter serious poems strewn with light and humorous themes and poems of sensual and spiritual love interwoven with poems of the unusual and political. These Israeli- Palestinian poets' distinctive flavor emerges from their ability to challenge rms, fight oppression, and burst open closed doors to tell their own stories - the stories of their plight, alienation, marginalization, and hopes and dreams - in a new magnified voice, first to their community, then to their people and nation, then to their country, and w to the wider English-speaking public.
