Poetry Anthology by Palestinian Refugee from Syria Translated into Greek

A renowned publishing house in Athens released the Greek version of a poetry anthology by the Palestinian poet Mahmoud AlSersawi, which was translated by Professor A. Pianotti. It includes a forward by Professor Renos Papa Dublos and notes by Prof. George Rodosynthos, journalist Kifah Jahjah, Greek teacher Anastats, Cypriot Minister of Labor and Communications, and Mayor of Strovolos. The anthology was published in its English version earlier this year under the title The Edge of Passion.

Palestinian poet Mahmoud AlSersawi has been a member of the Union of Palestinian Writers and Journalists since 1985. He has produced several poetic anthologies, including “Sighs of Drought”, “The Remains of the Soul”, “The Edge of Passion”, “Sound and Silence”, and “A Critical Study of Mahmoud Darwish's Poetry”.

A Palestinian poet from Syria, who now lives in Cyprus, Alsersawi is an awarded poet who also worked as a cultural editor for many Arabic and Palestinian journals before fleeing Syria. Ever since he fled to Cyprus with his family to escape the brutal war, he dreamed to have part of his poetry collection published and shared with Cypriots.

In 2010, he received the Palestinian Writers and Journalists Union decoration for his outstanding creativity and cultural activism. He is also the founder of the Ghassan Kanafani Forum in Damascus.

He began working in the press in 1988 and has written extensively in Palestinian and Arab newspapers.
