About the Author

Rachida Madani, a native of Morocco, has published several volumes of poetry in French, a language she taught for thirty years. A lifelong political militant, she expresses her resistance not by shouting slogans and waving banners. I fight with my words. She lives in Tangiers. Marilyn Hacker is a poet, translator, and critic. For her work she has received a National Book Award, a PEN Award for Poetry in Translation, and a PEN/Voelcker Award for Poetry, among other prizes. She lives in Paris.

Reviews
"Marilyn Hacker's translation from French is scrupulous and lively."--Robyn Creswell, The Paris Review--Robyn Creswell "The Paris Review "
"Hacker's translations of Madani's poems are fueled by her love of language; indeed, this is the work of a poet and translator who deeply believes in language as a means of transformation and imagination."--Warscapes --Warscapes
