PALESTINIAN POET GRABS STRUGA AWARD


Culture.

Noted Palestinian poet, Mahmoud Darvish has been awarded the 2007 International Struga Poetry Festival prize. He competed with poets from Mexico, Turkey, Slovenia, Bulgaria and Macedonia competed for the award, Iran Daily reports.
Darvish is one of the most famous contemporary poets of the Arab world and is considered a representative of the Palestinians through his poetry which mainly deals with banishment, migration and statelessness of the people of the lost land of Palestine.
Born in 1942 into a Sunni Muslim family, the poet was imprisoned several times when he was young because of a political activity or his public poetry readings. He has earned his world literary reputation not only as a poet but a novelist and literary theoretician. His work includes about 30 poetry books, eight prose books, and a total of 40 titles within other studies and publications.

MD: Congratulations to him! The Struga Poetry festival is one of the oldest and most accredited poetry festivals of the world that is held in Macedonia.
