We Call to the Eye & the Night
We Call to the Eye & the Night gathers almost two-hundred vibrant English-language love poems by contemporary writers of Arab descent, including eminent poets and those who have just begun to make their mark. With roots in diverse countries, they represent a breathtaking intersection of voices, experiences, and perspectives. Their poems divulge secret yearnings, discover the remarkable in the everyday, and conjure people and places that resonate after they are gone. Featured, of course, are evocative explorations of love and of the beloved; there are also poems of friendship and family, heritage and homeland, transporting us from city centers to the depths of the sea and to the stars above.
