Since the late 1940s, Arabic Poetry has spoken for an Arab conscience, as much as it has debated positions and ideologies, nationally and worldwide.

Arabic Poetry studies the poetic in its complexity as pertaining to issues of:

Selfhood
Individuality
Community
Religion
Ideology Nation
Class
Gender

This book also studies in context, issues that have been cursorily noticed or neglected, like Shi'i poetics, Sufism, women's poetry, and expressions of exilic consciousness. It employs current literary theory and provides comprehensive coverage of modern and post-modern poetry from the 1950s onwards.

Arabic Poetry is essential reading for those with interests inArabic culture and literature and Middle East studies.
