Etel Adnan s The Arab Apocalypse is a book of poetry that takes the reader through the ravages of the Lebanon Civil War Most notable to readers of The Arab Apocalypse is Adnan s incorporation of pictographs that signal to reader s deep alarm as they experience a deep sense of alienation upon attempting to construct a system of understanding This alienation is so alarming to readers because it highlights a lack of awareness which readers either dismiss on the premise that the pictographs are nonsensical or they pay close attention to this gap of understanding in an earnest attempt to capture the projected and intended meaning Both reactions to the pictographs suggest that perception is not universal nor are readers reactions to what is perceived While the pictographs are consistent throughout the text they don t impede the readability of the text when a reader forgets and then begins to pay atte

My pain is mounting the sun like a racing horse The field is infiniteI admit I really hated the poem at first But when I read the whole thing I knew what an idiot I was This poem was a BIG MOMENT OF EPIPHANY for me A blue acetylene sun died of frost in the presence of a palm treeIn death one plus one makes threeThis is a poem that shows you the brutality of fact and the cruelty of reality It WAKES YOU UP It is just like Eliot s human voices which wake you up to face the fact that we drown Etel Adnan offers no hope in her poem she only foresees destruction and a horrible overwhelming night So make sure that you wake up and become a candle amidst all that cold and all that dark In the night in the night we shall find knowledge love and peace

Characters ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Etel Adnan Free read ¿ 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. I am not a stranger to poetry but I m not entirely sure what Etel Adnan was trying to accomplish with her poetry book The Arab Apocalypse Perhaps it is because I m not Arabic Perhaps it is because I ve never directly dealt with war or suffering Maybe as an American and a white person my privilege which I fully recognize hinders me from seeing through the eyes of one who has truly known hardship But I believe that poetry should speak to people on a universal level That being said I do recognize certain elements of the craft which Adnan achieved This is a great example of form mimicking content as there is never a straightforward narrative or story and the lines and words all seem chaotic in nature This is true even down to the black symbols and illustrations on the pages Those very symbols are what made me weary of the form Personally I m not a fan of anything that seems gimmicky when it comes
