    Abundance from the Desert provides a comprehensive introduction to classical Arabic poetry, one of the richest of poetic traditions. Covering roughly the years 500-1250 CE, Farrin provides original translations and illuminating discussions of a number of major Arabic poems from a variety of genres. The poems are presented chronologically, each situated within a specific historical and literary context. Together, the selected poems suggest the range and depth of expression; read in sequence, they suggest the gradual evolution of a tradition.Moving beyond a mere chronicle, Farrin outlines a new approach to appreciating classical Arabic poetry based on an awareness of concentric symmetry, in which the poem's unity is viewed not as a linear progression but as an elaborate symmetrical plot. In doing so, the author presents these works in a broader, comparative light, revealing connections with other literatures. The reader is invited to examine these works not as isolated phenomenaùnotwithstanding their uniqueness and their association with a discrete traditionùbut rather as part of a great multicultural heritage.This pioneering book marks an important step forward in the study of Arabic poetry. At the same time, it opens the door to this rich tradition for the general reader.

    The Pacific Northwest’s vast and varied contemporary poetry scene is on display in Alive at the Center, a community-based anthology drawing from Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver, BC. A collection of more than 200 poems from a wide spectrum of poets, Alive at the Center is a cultural snapshot, showcasing the best new and established voices from these three cities. Three poets from each city came together to recognize the best work of their peers, curating a collection that explores the atmosphere, beauty, complexity, and personality of the region. As the inaugural project from Ooligan Press’s Pacific Poetry Project, this book embodies the Project’s mission to bring poetry to the people by making contemporary poetic voices accessible and exciting for everyone through community involvement and conversation.
