Today’s show is readings from Angry Voices: An Anthology of the off-Beat New Egyptian Poets, a collection of poets who have grown up during the Mubarak era. The book appeared in 2003 from the University of Arkansas Press and was edited by Mohamed Enani. This is from the editor’s introduction to the book:


The voices in this collection are not “angry”

in the sense of being enraged. Rather I have

dubbed them ‘angry’ in the sense of

rebellion. In one way or another, each of

these poets is rebelling against deeply

entrenched customs--linguistic, metrical,

formal, or social...They stand, as it were, in

the eye of a hurricane. Their main

innovation is breaking with the established order.
