Summary
The Nakba, or catastrophe, of 1948 saw hundreds of thousands of Palestinians dispossessed from their land to create the state of Israel, creating a refugee crisis that is still ongoing today. This trauma is a central theme in much of the writing from Palestine, whose writers have been the vanguard of identity and representation of their people, rendering their depths, fears, longings and hopes in a variety of discourses and styles. This unique collection brings together the finest poetry and prose on the Nakba by Palestinian writers over the last seventy years, for the first time
