Description

The poetry of Kazim Ali "invites us to give ourselves over to the music of language" (Beloit Poetry Journal). Known for its lyrical and expressive language, "crafted with a controlled, delicate quality that never stops questioning, never stops teaching, and never stops astounding," (American Poet), Ali's work explores themes of identity, migration, and the intersections of cultural and spiritual traditions.

Sukun (Arabic for stillness or rest, as well as being a diacritic that indicates there is no vowel to pronounce following a consonant) draws from a generous selection from Ali's six full-length collections. This remarkable volume also includes 25 astonishing new poems and an afterword by the poet. Together, they allow us to trace Ali's passions and concerns and to take the measure of his art: the close attention to the spiritual and the visceral, and the deep language play that is at once musical and plain spoken.
