Because You Love

By: Bennett, Maria

Price: $25.00

Publisher: Merrick, New York, USA, Cross-Cultural Communications: 2011

Edition: First

Seller ID: CCC975.1

ISBN: 0893045306

Condition: New


As the epigraph to her book, "I am the door / Only for those who suffer," from Carlos Edmundo de Ory, warns in BECAUSE YOU LOVE, Maria Bennett's poems form a cricible for suffering and yet manage to praise the power of love in the face of sicknes, aging, and death. Bennett's sensual lines are sparse, but rich and complex, like Theolonius Monk deconstructing a familiar melody. View more info

"The colloquial and accessible voice Hakak and Wolak tease out of these ghazals reveals the poet to be passionate, rebellious, and unerringly drunk with the kind of desire found only in Shakespeare's sonnets, or in the best of Shelley or Keats. . . . The emphasis in these translations, however, has been on the quality of language as it makes the transition to English, and on the essential Hafezian voice. Hafez, the lover and seeker of the sublime, comes out in lines whi... View more info
