Synopsis:

Fady Joudah’s The Earth in the Attic is the 2007 winner of the Yale Series of Younger Poets competition. In his poems Joudah explores big themes—identity, war, religion, what we hold in common—while never losing sight of the quotidian, the specific. Contest judge Louise Glück describes the poet in her Foreword as “that strange animal, the lyric poet in whom circumstance and profession . . . have compelled obsession with large social contexts and grave national dilemmas.” She finds in his poetry an incantatory quality and concludes, “These are small poems, many of them, but the grandeur of conception is inescapable. The Earth in the Attic is varied, coherent, fierce, tender; impossible to put down, impossible to forget.”

From the Author:

Pulse 10.

 

In the calmAfter the rain has bombed

 

The earth, the antsMarch out of their shelters One long frantic migration line:

 

They hit the concrete floorOf our dining and living Space then turn into the shadowThe wall makes: a straight angle Is the surest compassTo the courtyard wreckage of dirt and gravel.

 

Did they know the windWould airdrop New rations their way?Because always two or three

 

Lock their hornsTo the acid end

 

Over nothingIt seems more

 

Than an impulse, the debrisPlenty for all.
