About the Author

Born in Jerusalem and educated at Victoria College in Cairo and at Princeton and Harvard universities, Edward Said has taught at Columbia University since 1963 and has been a visiting professor at Harvard and Johns Hopkins University. He has had an unusual dual career as a professor of comparative mostrar mais literature, a recognized expert on the novelist and short story writer Joseph Conrad, (see Vol. 1) and as one of the most significant contemporary writers on the Middle East, especially the Palestinian question and the plight of Palestinians living in the occupied territories. Although he is not a trained historian, his Orientalism (1978) is one of the most stimulating critical evaluations of traditional Western writing on Middle Eastern history, societies, and literature. In the controversial Covering Islam (1981), he examined how the Western media have biased Western perspectives on the Middle East. A Palestinian by birth, Said has sought to show how Palestinian history differs from the rest of Arabic history because of the encounter with Jewish settlers and to present to Western readers a more broadly representative Palestinian position than they usually obtain from Western sources. Said is presently Old Dominion Foundation Professor in the Humanities at Columbia, editor of Arab Studies Quarterly, and chair of the board of trustees of the Institute of Arab Studies. He is a member of the Palestinian National Council as well as the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. (Bowker Author Biography) Edward W. Said is University Professor of English & Comparative Literature at Columbia University. He is the author of nineteen books, including "Orientalism" (which was nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award), "Culture & Imperialism", "The End of the Peace Process", & "Out of Place", a memoir. He lives in New York City. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Thank you NetGalley for the chance to read and review this!

As another reviewer on here said it; there is a reason Said is not known for his poetry. This was never really meant to be published (some really truly feel unfinished) and that it is collected will be off an interest to people studying him and his work; he is not a poet and there is no reason to make him one (his merits are known).

That being said, I do think there are beautiful moments within these poems, the first part of Desert Flowers for instance, "I fled with my hearts roof torn open, blown apart" from Wistful Music, and of course

"heard no, but hurt most certainly"

Subordinating culture is the fruit of imperialist tree.

The book will change the way you read the old classics - if you are Asian or have been colonized. When I read, for instance, "Heart of Darkness," I did not think of it as a book with imperialist overtones. However, authors are products of their times. Edward Said has done many of us a favour by writing this excellent book, which provides us with a different view of the old books.
He has included the recent imperialistic attitude of the American which, for instance, resulted in the Iraq War.
The book is excellent. Read it with care. Read it after you finish "Orientalism." Both books demand patience.
