Mourid Barghouti

The Palestinian poet Mourid Barghouti has published fourteen books of poetry and the autobiographical narrative I Saw Ramallah, which Edward Said described as ‘one of the finest existential accounts of Palestinian displacement we now have’. At the London Review Bookshop, Barghouti read from I Saw Ramallah, which won the Naguib Mahfouz Medal for Literature in 1997, and from his new book of poetry, Midnight and Other Poems.
