The first two essays in the book are about mysticism in modern Arabic poetry. The second two essays discuss literary philosophy in modern Hebrew poetry. All the essays focus on the 1960s and 1970s, a time when Arabic and Hebrew poets hoped that through their writings they could help bring peace to a war torn Middle East. The four essays include author Aviva Butt’s translations of entire poems, making the book an absolute joy to read.
The poets under discussion in the first three essays are Adunis (Adonis), Mahmud Darwish (Arabic poets) and Natan Zach (Hebrew poet). Rashid Husayn (Arabic poet) is also mentioned. The last essay, A Surge of Poetry, deals with the creativity of Hebrew poets Natan Zach, Yehuda Amichai, Meir Wieseltier and Asher Reich. Natan Alterman (Hebrew poet) is also mentioned.
