The Pomegranates of Kandahar

Sarah Maguire has a long-standing interest in and commitment to the languages and cultures of the Middle East, having translated the work of a number of Arabic poets, and being herself the only living English-language poet to have a book in print in Arabic. Her political commitment, and her feminism, feeds into her poetry, blending seamlessly with her formal botanical training to produce unusually precise, and unusually figurative, versions of the natural and human worlds. This is her fourth collection.
