By Mahmoud Darwish
“There are maps of Palestine that the politicians won't ever be ready to forfeit: the only stored within the thoughts of Palestinian refugees, and that that is drawn by way of Mahmoud Darwish’s poetry.”—Anton Shammas
This extraordinary number of Mahmoud Darwish’s poems and prose meditations is either lyrical and philosophical, wondering and clever, filled with irony and protest and play. “Every appealing poem is an act of resistance.” As continually, Darwish’s musings on unrest and loss stay on love and humanity; fable and dream are inseparable from fact. “Truth is apparent as day.” during the publication, Darwish returns often to his ongoing and sometimes lighthearted dialog with death.
Mahmoud Darwish (1941–2008) used to be offered the Lannan Prize for Cultural Freedom in 2001. He used to be considered as the voice of the Palestinian humans and one of many maximum poets of our time.

Indeed the whole structure is alive with textual interfaces and correspondences, but however much we might be tempted to cite this as an early example of Concretism, we should remember that running through these complex and literally unrecitable patterns of signification is a univocal presence. When Blake in Songs of Innocence and Experience refers to “the Bard,” whose “ears have heard the holy word,” the signifying pattern is caught between a movement beyond the materiality of the poem to some projected ideational conception of the Bard and an internal formula of alliteration (“have, heard, holy”) and rhyme (“heardword”).

His poems deconstruct the tension between permanence and transcendence in language by interweaving the immediacy and ephemerality of the utterance with the permanent materiality of the artefact. Cummings is that rare phenomenon, a poet without a specific aesthetic or technical context. His work appears in anthologies of Concrete Poetry, but it is just as likely to be found in collections whose criterion for inclusion could be “American”, “modern”, “contemporary” or sometimes “comic”. In studies of free verse he features as the nagging eccentric whose presence cannot be ignored, but whose experiments continue to disrupt our attempts to document the methods and characteristics of Modernist writing.
