Sonal longing and cultural tragedy Hashem Beck s poems offer a lens through which to see life in the Middle East They are timeless explorations of love lo I first read Beck s work in her winning chapbook 3arabi Song Some of the poems from that chapbook are in this longer collection and they were wonderful to read againThere is much beyond my knowledge and experience here but the magic of poetry of languages shared is that it bridges us by emotions and the music of the sounds You ll need the glossary You ll need to go a little slower and listen for the tastes and smells that are new to you It s like stepping into a stranger s home and feeling a little awkward until you see that they also have a record you love or a book you ve worn to tatters and then you can start the conversation over and relax
