If Only the Sea Could Sleep by Adonis

Book Description

One 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.'

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 by Adonis Sufism and Surrealism, Paperback (February 2016)
