Abstract

this is a 6 part series on poets from Irak, Western Sahara, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Egypt. Poetry in the Middle East lives and breathes like few other places.
In a region long dominated by authoritarian regimes, poetry is the medium for expressing people’s hopes, dreams and frustrations. Poets became historians, journalists, entertainers – even revolutionaries. Their words are a key weapon of the Arab Spring, taunting regimes though protest songs and graffiti, with the authors often arrested.
