"This book is the most important contribution to world literature for this year. . . . Every page shocks with different energy."-- (03/05/2013)
"With ingenious translations and informative commentaries, Joris and Tengour . . make palpable that this region is a wellspring of the culture we value in the West. In so doing, they restore to us missing parts of the 'cradle' of our civilization."-- (12/01/2012)
"A 'must own' item."--Silliman's Blog (03/07/2013)
"Their book comes at a time when there are a slew of English titles published on the Arab world, but unlike the majority of them, this volume actually encourages cultural appreciation. I could wax rhapsodic about these poems for months."-- (03/20/2013)
"This is a magisterial effort by two absolutely serious and accomplished poet-scholars. It is an important addition to the Poems for the Millennium series and significant in its own right, both expanding and complicating notions of the modern by introducing us to many writers we might not otherwise encounter."-- (11/01/2013)
