Overview
The new collection by the Lebanese poet Venus Khoury-Ghata, the author of She Says, a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award "it could only have been elsewhere
the sun's anger overturned the country
men who came from the wounded side of the river knocked
on our borders
I say men so as not to say locusts
" --from "Nettles"
In "Nettles," Venus Khoury-Ghata brings her impulses for lyric poetry and for stark narrative together into four enchanting sequences. Each confronts the realities of womanhood, immigration, and cultural conflict with an imagination and history born from both the Arabic and French languages. Masterfully translated by
Marilyn Hacker, "Nettles "gives American readers this utterly original, indispensable poetry."
