Marilyn Hacker, trans.

Venus Khoury-Ghata, Nettles
(Graywolf, 2008)

Masterfully translated by Marilyn Hacker, this new collection of original poetry is by Lebanese poet Vénus Khoury-Ghata, author of She Says, a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. In this collection, Vénus Khoury-Ghata brings her impulses for lyric poetry and for stark narrative together into four enchanting sequences. Each confronts the realities of womanhood, immigration, and cultural conflict with an imagination and history born from both the Arabic and French languages. Marilyn Hacker is a professor of French at City College and the Graduate Center.
