Fadhil al Azzawi

A quote from Iraqi poet Fadhil al Azzawi. (We carry his collection of poems Miracle Maker - his selected poems from BOA editions)
"Here is where I see the exceptional role of poetry: to confront the numerous lies and forgeries and to pull the masks off of the delusion-sellers' faces by affirming the truth that is buried under piles of commercialized and repetitive language, and to delve to the bottom of the deepest oceans to capture the jewels of speech."
