about

Mahmoud Darwish: Palestine''s Poet and the Other as the Belovedfocuses on Palestinian national poet Mahmoud Darwish (1941-2008), whose poetry has helped to shape Palestinian identity and foster Palestinian culture through many decades of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Dalya Cohen-Mor explores the poet''s romantic relationship with "Rita," an Israeli Jewish woman whom he had met in Haifa in his early twenties and to whom he had dedicated a series of love poems and prose passages, among them the iconic poem "Rita and the Gun." Interwoven with biographical details and diverse documentary materials, this exploration reveals a fascinating facet in the poet''s personality, his self-definition, and his attitude toward the Israeli other. Comprising a close reading of Darwish''s love poems, coupled with many examples of novels and short stories from both Arabic and Hebrew fiction that deal with Arab-Jewish love stories, this book delves into the complexity of Arab-Jewish relations and shows how romance can blossom across ethno-religious lines and how politics all too often destroys it.
