If I were, today, to choose “The Poet of The Decade” in Jordan, I would, immediately without any hesitation, say: Ziad Al-Anani.
Ziad is a magician, a true one. He is not an illusionist. Through his mastery of engraving words into unthinkable images, he takes us in an astonishing journey beyond realities. In his unique wonderlands we live our own realities in different magical ways.
And with magic comes music. To read Ziad Al-Anani means to listen to profound sounds which link to the deep voices of authentic human singing.
Ziad Al-Anani is a name to remember when you think of Poetry in Jordan.
