the Unattainable Lotus
This is a bilingual anthology of the poetry of Badia Kashgari. These are the poems of a strong and sensual soul, suffused with the rich light of the Arab-Islamic culture she not only inherits, but furthers, as a living tradition through her work. Her poetry reflects n Arabic sensibility in English dress, lending her work a freshness and originality of phrasing that is the power and achievement of this poet's solitary transcendent voice.
