Nahr al-Ramad: Shi'r / Pomegranate River: Poems

Beirut: Dar al-Taliah, 1961. First printing. Paperback. 8vo, wraps, very good, light wear. 141 pp. Text in Arabic. Poetry. Hawi (1919-1982) was one of the most famous Lebanese poets of the 20th century. In 1982, upon the Israeli invasion of Beirut in the midst of the Lebanese Civil War, Hawi committed suicide with a rifle in his apartment near the American University of Beirut. He was outraged by Lebanon's inability to stand up to the Israeli army when the latter invaded on 3 June 1982, and he deeply resented the other Arab governments' silence about the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in what was dubbed Operation Peace of Galilee, led by former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Very Good. Item #H23716
