Abdul Karim Sabawi, the Gaza-born author of ten novels and collections of poetry, has for the first time issued a volume of his poems translated into English.
The collection, Blood for Freedom, which is available to read as an e-book from the author’s website, contains 21 poems written at various stages of Sabawi’s career. They reflect his main literary preoccupations and subjects – the Palestinian issue, Palestinian culture and its vulnerability under occupation, and the condition of exile.
Sabawi himself became a refugee from Gaza in 1967, when he had to flee along with his mother and other family members to join his father in Jordan, after he was expelled by the Israeli military. Sabawi himself had graduated from Cairo University and worked as a teacher in Gaza before joining the resistance.
