"Mattawa’s book is an insightful and well-documented study of Mahmoud Darwish. It is a welcome contribution to understanding this great poet of Arabic literature and an outstanding paradigm for future studies."—Review of Middle East Studies

"Mattawa’s analysis provides a fascinating interpretation of Darwish’s national poetry."—Bustan: The Middle East Book Review

"A brilliant and illuminating look at one of the greatest Arab poets of all time, by one of the greatest Arab poets of our time."—Reza Aslan, author of Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth

"Written with fluidity that does justice to the poet he analyzes, Khaled Mattawa’s Mahmoud Darwish: The Poet’s Arts and His Nation is a superbly constructed book that contextualizes Darwish’s language, aesthetics, structures, and devices. Mattawa treats these complexities with tremendous skill, framing his critique of Darwish in a larger framework of poetry’s role in the political and cultural discourses that shaped Palestinian identity."—Steven Salaita, author of Modern Arab American Fiction: A Reader’s Guide

"Mattawa’s homage to Mahmoud Darwish, through a very intelligent and perceptive reading of some of his most important poems, reveals a very human side to one of the greatest voices in modern Arabic poetry."—Terri DeYoung, Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilization, University of Washington
