Reading of Taha Muhammad Ali’s Poem "Revenge" at the 11th Dodge Poetry Festival


After an extraordinary festival earlier this fall, they posted a reading online by Taha Muhammad Ali in Arabic, and Peter Cole in English, of Taha’s poem, “Revenge.”
Bit of background they offer: In 1948, Taha fled from Galilee to Lebanon with his family when their village came under heavy bombardment during the Arab-Israeli war. A year later, still a teenager, he went back across the border and settled in Nazareth where he still lives, now as an Israeli citizen. When he is not reading and writing poetry, he runs a souvenir shop.
