Writing Home-Watan (homeland)

وطن/ watan (Homeland) 


In this episode of Writing Home, Madhvi and Belal share their reflections on resistance and revolution, revisiting poems and music of resistance. 


Mahmoud Darwish writes “Sometimes I feel as if I am read before I write. When I write a poem about my mother, Palestinians think my mother is a symbol for Palestine. But I write as a poet, and my mother is my mother. She's not a symbol.” 


Poets-Mahmoud Darwish, Maya Angelou, Rafeef Ziadah, Noor Hindi, Naomi Shihab Nye, Hanan Ashrawi, Samih al-Qasim
