Description

In Modern Arabic Poetry, Waed Athamneh addresses enduring questions raised from the 1950s to the present as she investigates the impact of past and contemporary Middle Eastern politics on its poetry. Focusing on the works of three prominent poets, Iraqi ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Bayātī (1926–1999), Egyptian Aḥmad ʿAbd al-Muʿṭī Ḥijāzī (b. 1935), and Palestinian Maḥmūd Darwīsh (1941–2008), Athamneh argues that political changes in the modern Arab world—including the 1967 war and the fall of Nasserism, the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and, in Ḥijāzī's case, the 2011 Arab Uprising and its aftermath—inspired transitions and new directions in these poets' works. Enhanced by Athamneh's original translations of a number of the Arabic texts discussed, as well as translations published previously, Modern Arabic Poetry brings these poets fully into the purview of contemporary literary, political, and critical discourse. It argues that their individual responses to political changes proceed in three distinct directions: the metapoetic, in which the poet disengages from the poetry of political commitment to find inspiration in artistic (self-)exploration; the recommitted, in which new political revolutions inspire the poet to resume writing and publishing poetry; and the humanist, in which the poet comes to terms of coexistence with permanent or unresolved conflict.

I am overwhelmed by the generosity of my family, friends, and mentors who have contributed to this book in any and every way. I would like to express my unmatched gratitude to my mentors and friends Suzanne Stetkevych and Jaroslav Stetkevych for their meticulous feedback and invaluable support and inspiration throughout the past nine years. At the University of Notre Dame Press, I have been privileged to work with the publication team: Rebecca DeBoer, the managing editor, and the acquisitions editor, Stephen Little, for whose signiîcant support and feedback I am thankful, and Kellie M. Hultgren for her conscientious copy editing and preparation of the înal manuscript for publication. I would also like to thank Susanna J. Sturgis for her meticulous work in preparing the manuscript for submission and the peer reviewers for their insight and wisdom. I am grateful to Connecticut College for their gener-ous înancial support, such as Research Matters awards, R. F. Johnson awards, and the sabbatical leave in 2014–2015, without which I would not have been able to prepare the înal version of my book. I would like to thank my family, especially my father, Nasser Atham-neh, and my mother, Aida Ajlouni, for their love, inspiration, and un-matchable support throughout the years, and for being great parents for me and my siblings: Deema, Husam, Liqa, Muhammad, Seif, and Dea. It would not be complete without dearly thanking my late grandfather Hajj Ibrahim al-Ajlouni for instilling the love for humanity and litera-ture in me. I would like to înally thank my husband, Muhammad, and my joy-ful baby, Ghassan, for their tremendous love, forbearance, and support. Ghassan was born while I was editing the book in Jordan, and he was so
