About this title

Synopsis:

First poetry collection by London-based Jordanian poet in English translation by foremost Arabic poetry translator.

"With his unusually wide and expressive range Amjad Nasser unites the varied facets of his experience in a discourse at once perceptive, critical, tender, and ironically comic."
Alfred Corn

At times a powerfully existential chronicle of exile, Shepherd of Solitude conjures a new understanding of Arab life, from war-torn Beirut, to castles in Andalusia, to Bedouin Jordan, to a London suburb. Amjad Nasser blends his Bedouin Arab heritage with European literary modernism producing an enthralling range of vivid, thoughtful and intimate poems.

Shepherd of Solitude is Amjad Nasser's first English collection, translated and introduced by the foremost translator of contemporary Arabic poetry into English Khaled Mattawa, with the poems selected by poet and translator from the poet's Arabic volumes over the years 1979 to 2004.

About the Author:

Amjad Nasser was born in Jordan in 1955. He is a major contributor to today's Arab poetry scene and has published eight volumes of poetry and two travel memoirs, Flight of Wings (1998) and Under More than One Sky (2002). He works as managing editor and cultural editor of Al-Quds Al-Arabi daily newspaper. Translations of his poetry have been published in French, Italian, and Spanish.
