Baghdad: The City in Verse captures the essence of life lived in one of the world’s enduring metropolises. This unusual anthology offers original translations of more than 170 Arabic poems from Bedouin, Muslim, Christian, Kurdish, and Jewish poets—most for the first time in English—from Baghdad’s founding in the eighth century to the present day.
Translated and edited by Reuven Snir
