محمود درويش في شبابه، شاعر القضية الفلسطينية
His Life:
Mahmoud Darwish was born in "Al Birweh" Palestine (1941), During the establishment of the State of "Israel" in (1948), his village was destroyed and his family fled to Lebanon. As a young man, Darwish faced house arrest and imprisonment for his political activism and for publicly reading his poetry. - Darwish published his first work of poetry "Wingless Birds" in (1964), when he was 19.
His Poems:
I am from there, I am from here. I am not there, and I am not here. I have two names, which meet and part. And I have two languages, I forget which
We love life if we find a way to it. And we plant, where we settle, some fast growing plants, and harvest the dead. We play the flute like the color of the faraway, sketch over the dirt corridor a neigh. We write our names one stone at a time, O lightning brighten the night. We love life if we find a way to it…
If the canary doesn't sing to you my friend know that you are the warden of your prison
- Translated by Fady Joudah

...but they say extreme fear drives the fearful to deep and continual slumber. Sleeping, she sleeps; waking, she sleeps; walking, she sleeps; and eating, she sleeps.

Mahmoud Darwish, from Memory for Forgetfulness: August, Beirut, 1982 (tr. Ibrahim Muhawi)
For context: this is written within a work regarding the siege of Beirut in 1982. “Memory for Forgetfulness is an extended reflection on the invasion and its political and historical dimensions. It is also a journey into personal and collective memory. What is the meaning of exile? What is the role of the writer in time of war? What is the relationship of writing (memory) to history (forgetfulness)?” (x)
