Mirror of a Soul

Mirror of a Soul

Author : Khaled Nusseibeh

Like his previously published five collections of poems, Khaled H.Nusseibeh’s new collection of poems deals with a wide variety of themes and abstract ideas as is indicated by the titles of his poems e.g.: “June 5, 1967”, “Discipline”, “Conflict Theory”, “Hidden Desires”, “Pyramids”, “Pitfall”, “Equal Treatment”, “The Cedar Tree”, “Prometheus”, “Prisoners of Palestine”. The large variety of topics dealt with in this collection testifies to the poet's great erudition and his remarkable comprehensive interest in human affairs and universal issues.
To drive home his themes in the most effective manner, Nusseibeh employs all forms of poetic, aesthetic, rhetorical, and artistic techniques. For instance, in the first poem of the collection entitled “June 5,1967”, the poet uses intertextuality and allusions to portray the enormity of the disastrous consequences of the June 5, 1967 war in the Arab world. The terrible defeat inflicted on the Arabs by Israel in this war is presented on a par with the sacking of Troy and other international disasters of great magnitude.
