"The Selected Poems of Fadhil Al-Azzawi" translated with an introduction by Khaled Mattawa. In the current disgrade, amid the din of corporate trolls contending with medieval ogres, of course, the good poet opts for the fairy tale. And, of course, the godly idealist chooses the tempty dream and desert hells which only the godly know as paradise. Fadhil Al-Azzawi has outsped his tormentors and turned their history, thanks be to God, upon its head. He is the mandelstam of now, with Mayakovsky's panache thrown in for good measure. These poems profess a future without precedent.
