The Arab Apocalypse

review The Arab Apocalypse 103 characters The Arab Apocalypse Rely registered by maps replete with signposts like hieroglyphs in a storm of shrapnel and broken glass And above all it is a book that though capable of being read in its orderly seuence has so surrendered to 'being there ' it can rivet the sensibility to the Middle Eastern condition at any point in the text so rapid are its mutations so becoming its becomingness like a wisdom book or a book of Changes Jack HirschmanIt has a power and intensity that few poets today can muster only Allen Ginsberg's. On the brink of unintelligible is the way one might describe this text To be perfectly honest if I were not obliged to continue reading this work I would have almost certainly stopped after the very first page if I d even made it that farHowever upon delving further into Adnan s glyph poetry it becomes clear that the author does in fact have an incredible grasp on language and the acute knowledge of what imagery will most affect her readers I found myself almost lulled into a sense of comfort by the nonsensical passage of words and symbols on the page practically glossing over them when all at once I would read a line so startling I was forced to pause and imagine in my own mental fabrication what exactly those scenes would look like It was exactly those soft explosions catching my attention that caused me to become engrossed in deriving a singular distinct plot line and conseuently caused me to grow and lost with each page As mentioned earlier Adnan s command of the language makes me wonder whether the text would have been effective as a piece of prose yet the schizophrenic way the glyphs appear slapped on the page like tiny disruptive bombs evoked for me a sense of war on the reader It was utter chaos and when the dust cleared for a few moments at a time it was only to reveal a harrowing scene of human suffering just long enough before jumping right back in to the unintelligible The poetry is of course unconventional but to a surprising extent the author does manage to evoke the conventional visceral reaction that is to be expected from individuals reading about war Were it not for the sickeningly memorable lines such as the sun cut their toes and told the Palestinians this is your dinner 65 and We are all future corpses 64 this book just might have ended up back at the bookstore

review The Arab Apocalypse 103 characters The Arab Apocalypse Howl comes to mind Alice MolloyThe power of Adnan's language and imagery reminds us that she is indeed one of the most significant post modern poets in contemporary Arab culture Kamal BoullattaTHE ARAB APOCALYPSE is to date Adnan's most triumphant battle with the exactness of words Douglas PowellThe poem invokes a mythic past of Gilgamesh Tammouz and Ishtar to presage a present that resists narration THE ARAB APOCALYPSE contests an uncritical reflection on the immediate historical past Barbara Harlo. Reading without understanding Knowing without knowledge If I continue making up platitudes I m sure something will stick that appropriately describes The Arab Apocalypse s uniue phenomenology In the Hollywood sci fi blockbuster Arrival the two main characters are asked to decipher an alien language built on symbols In understanding the language the characters rewire their brains to conceive of time outside of anglo saxon linearity which or less solves the language and concludes the movie Nonesuch resolution waits for us here reading tAA However through reading the text and examining it is an object we can if only momentarily ie while interfacing w this object begin to shift our understanding of a text textual objects language In viewing the text as an object I can do the following in variant and recurring orders hold the text smell the text read one page look at the cover read a different page look at the first page place the text over my face like a mask flip through the book s pages watch text fly by skip certain words skip certain pages examine the book s orange cover with black text look at the calendar think about pumpkin pie et cetera et cetera ho humApocalypses have a finality and explosion to them At times this text feels like an explosion a big bang of interpretation and knowing different planets stars systems of knowing The initial chaos of the text eventually enables a uietude within that chaos at least for me Part of me feels guilty for feeling at home in a text that s predicated on chaos or appears to be
