“Have the poets left anything to be said?” This, the first hemistich of Muallaqa of Antara, has been answered resoundingly by the rich and long tradition of Arabic literature and poetry. To advance the conversation, this panel explores the role of editing in the translation of Arabic literature into English.
Please note this event is at Emirates Writers Union in Abu Dhabi National Theater.
