Poetry. African Studies. Edited by Guy Bennett. Translated by Guy Bennett, Pierre Joris, Addie Leak, and Teresa Villa-Ignacio. This bilingual edition of the selected poems of Mostafa Nissabouri brings together writings from throughout his career, from early texts that initially appeared in Souffles in the mid-1960s to selections from a current, unfinished manuscript--Divan de la mer obscure Dark Sea Divan]--still unpublished in the original French. With the exception of a translation of Approche du d sertique Approach to the Desert Space] by Guy Bennett, until now the only complete work of Nissabouri's available in English, the trade editions of all of his books are out of print and difficult to come by. The present volume seeks to remedy this lack, making available to francophone and anglophone readers more than half of Nissabouri's published poetry. It concludes with a lengthy interview with the poet.
