If Only the Sea Could Sleep by Adonis
Book DescriptionOne of the greatest poets of Arabic literature, Adonis's work often centres on the process of petic creation, but his work has somehow remained highly appealing to Arab readers, and he has had, perhaps, more influence in terms of innovation and modernity than any other contemporary Arab poet. Twice he has been a finalist for the Nobel Prize. For Adonis, poetry is a vision, a 'leap outside of established concepts, a change in the order of things and the way we look at them.'

Violence and Islam: Conversations with Houria Abdelouahed, Hardback (September 2016)
Adonis' influence on Arabic literature has been likened to that of T.S. Eliot in the English-speaking world. Yet alongside this spearheading of a modernist literary revolution, the secular Syrian-born poet is also renowned for his persistent and staunch attacks on despotism across the Arab world.
Sufism and Surrealism, Paperback (February 2016)
One of the greatest living Arab poets offers a radical exploration of the commonalities between two seemingly disparate traditions, Sufism and Surrealism. Similarities and intersections are discovered in the writings of leading figures such as Rimbaud, Breton, ibn 'Arabi and al-Niffari.
