review The Arab Apocalypse

Etel Adnan ó 0 characters Free read Õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ó Etel Adnan review The Arab Apocalypse Rely registered by maps replete with signposts like hieroglyphs in a storm of shrapnel and broken glass And above all it is a book that though capable of being read in its orderly seuence has so surrendered to 'being there ' it can rivet the sensibility to the Middle Eastern condition at any point in the text so rapid are its mutations so becoming its becomingness like a wisdom book or a book of Changes Jack HirschmanIt has a power and intensity that few poets today can muster only Allen Ginsberg's. On the brink of unintelligible is the way one might describe this text To be perfectly honest if I were not obliged to continue reading this work I would have almost certainly stopped after the very first page if I d even made it that farHowever upon delving further into Adnan s glyph poetry it becomes clear that the author does in fact have an incredible grasp on language and the acute knowledge of what imagery will most affect her readers I found myself almost lulled into a sense of comfort by the nonsensical passage of words and symbols on the page practically glossing over them when all at once I would read a line so startling I was forced to pause and imagine in my own mental fabrication what exactly those scenes would look like It was exactly those soft explosions catching my attention that caused me to become engrossed in deriving a singular distinct plot line and conseuently caused me to grow and lost with each page As mentioned earlier Adnan s command of the language makes me wonder whether the text would have been effective as a piece of prose yet the schizophrenic way the glyphs appear slapped on the page like tiny disruptive bombs evoked for me a sense of war on the reader It was utter chaos and when the dust cleared for a few moments at a time it was only to reveal a harrowing scene of human suffering just long enough before jumping right back in to the unintelligible The poetry is of course unconventional but to a surprising extent the author does manage to evoke the conventional visceral reaction that is to be expected from individuals reading about war Were it not for the sickeningly memorable lines such as the sun cut their toes and told the Palestinians this is your dinner 65 and We are all future corpses 64 this book just might have ended up back at the bookstore

Etel Adnan ó 0 characters Free read Õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ó Etel Adnan review The Arab Apocalypse Howl comes to mind Alice MolloyThe power of Adnan's language and imagery reminds us that she is indeed one of the most significant post modern poets in contemporary Arab culture Kamal BoullattaTHE ARAB APOCALYPSE is to date Adnan's most triumphant battle with the exactness of words Douglas PowellThe poem invokes a mythic past of Gilgamesh Tammouz and Ishtar to presage a present that resists narration THE ARAB APOCALYPSE contests an uncritical reflection on the immediate historical past Barbara Harlo. The Arab Apocalypse is a collection of 59 poems that center around the sun and the Lebanese Civil War The lines are highly fragmented in terms of spacing the use of glyphs and subject changes that are not marked by traditional punctuation As Etel Adnan is also a visual artist I think that one of the most important parts of the book is the sense of subjectivity that each reader brings to it The text itself is non linear and it essentially jumps from one image to the next with of a goal to create impressions than describe specific events sun spinning top incredibly spinning instead of our eyes 39 Interspersed throughout the text are often seemingly random spaces which are sometimes accompanied by glyphs The glyphs themselves are varied some of them are ancient symbols that have been used throughout various cultures while others seem to be symbols that Adnan created Both of those elements lend to a very open interpretation of the text as a whole As a commentary on the Lebanese Civil War I did not get much from the text because of its non linear nature However as an exercise in form and structure the poems were interesting and thought provoking I think that most writers want to guide readers thinking than Adnan does in Arab Apocalypse especially about such a serious topic But in ceding control the book allows the reader to make their own meaning and interact with the images in the way that will make the most impact for them
