Director’s Choice for Fall 2015

"A fascinating panoramic view of Palestinian artistic production in the past two decades."—Sally Bland, The Jordan Times

"The author beautifully shows how these artists express their belonging to Palestine despite many forces aiming at their erasure and how they have done so in aesthetically accepted ways."—Issa J. Boullata, World Literature Today

"In the Wake of the Poetic links literary criticism with Palestinian reality to give a fascinating panoramic view of Palestinian artistic production in the past two decades."—The Jordan Times

"An intensely insightful reading of diverse transnational forms of Palestinian nationhood in Palestinian art—in hip hop, spoken word poetry, film, music, and visual arts. Najat Rahman’s In the Wake of the Poetic: Palestinian Artists After Darwish is a compelling accomplishment."—Mary N. Layoun, Department of Comparative Literature & Folklore Studies

"The first substantial study to trace the impact of Arabic poetry on proliferating art forms and to see the connections between them, as though the works produced In the Wake of the Poetic seamlessly come out of the ones before it."—Dina Matar, senior lecturer in Arab media and political communication at SOAS, University of London

"An ambitious book and it delivers on its promise, offering close readings of little-known texts and acts of artistic performance, as it contributes powerfully to English language writing on an artistic, cinematic, musical, and poetic scene. . . . It teaches patiently, and with the grace and profundity of a great work of scholarship, a new politics of listening."—Jeffrey Sacks, associate professor of Arabic and comparative literature, University of California, Riverside
