Dunya Mikhail

Interview in English in the magazine Guernica.

Published in 2006 by Carcanet, a book of poems called The War Works Hard. Translated from Arabic to English.

Click on 'Excerpt' to read one poem from the collection: 'How magnificent the war is!'

I find it helpful to just read one short poem, otherwise I get brain indigestion. So trust the editors to have picked one to let you look into her world without drowning. One of my tutors was like that, with him it was ok to just take one careful glance at a time.
