MY THREATENING POEM - THE MEMOIR OF A POET IN OCCUPATION PRISONS
Passionate, direct and rich with humanity in the face of brute force and dehumanisation, Dareen Tatour recalls her experience from arrest through imprisonment for the 'crime' of writing defiant poetry. This book, published in translation from Arabic to English for the first time, is a testimony of the power of language, poetry and the human spirit to overcome violent authority.
