Adnan Al-Sayegh

ADNAN AL-SAYEGH was born in al-Kufa, Iraq in 1955. One of the original voices of his generation, he has published ten collections in Arabic, including the 500-page poem Uruk's Anthem, and has received several international awards. He has read his poetry across Europe and the Arab world, at the Medellín Festival in Colombia and in Cuba. The uncompromising lyricism of his poetry forced him to leave Iraq in 1993 and he has lived in exile since then, in Jordan, Lebanon, Sweden and since 2004 in London.



Adnan Al-Sayegh's work featured in PN Review comprises one report. Also available are one review of Adnan Al-Sayegh's work and one translation by Adnan Al-Sayegh.
