REVIEW ✓ The Arab Apocalypse Howl comes to mind Alice MolloyThe power of Adnan's language and imagery reminds us that she is indeed one of the most significant post modern poets in contemporary Arab culture Kamal BoullattaTHE ARAB APOCALYPSE is to date Adnan's most triumphant battle with the exactness of words Douglas PowellThe poem invokes a mythic past of Gilgamesh Tammouz and Ishtar to presage a present that resists narration THE ARAB APOCALYPSE contests an uncritical reflection on the immediate historical past Barbara Harlo. Reading without understanding Knowing without knowledge If I continue making up platitudes I m sure something will stick that appropriately describes The Arab Apocalypse s uniue phenomenology In the Hollywood sci fi blockbuster Arrival the two main characters are asked to decipher an alien language built on symbols In understanding the language the characters rewire their brains to conceive of time outside of anglo saxon linearity which or less solves the language and concludes the movie Nonesuch resolution waits for us here reading tAA However through reading the text and examining it is an object we can if only momentarily ie while interfacing w this object begin to shift our understanding of a text textual objects language In viewing the text as an object I can do the following in variant and recurring orders hold the text smell the text read one page look at the cover read a different page look at the first page place the text over my face like a mask flip through the book s pages watch text fly by skip certain words skip certain pages examine the book s orange cover with black text look at the calendar think about pumpkin pie et cetera et cetera ho humApocalypses have a finality and explosion to them At times this text feels like an explosion a big bang of interpretation and knowing different planets stars systems of knowing The initial chaos of the text eventually enables a uietude within that chaos at least for me Part of me feels guilty for feeling at home in a text that s predicated on chaos or appears to be

REVIEW ✓ The Arab Apocalypse Rely registered by maps replete with signposts like hieroglyphs in a storm of shrapnel and broken glass And above all it is a book that though capable of being read in its orderly seuence has so surrendered to 'being there ' it can rivet the sensibility to the Middle Eastern condition at any point in the text so rapid are its mutations so becoming its becomingness like a wisdom book or a book of Changes Jack HirschmanIt has a power and intensity that few poets today can muster only Allen Ginsberg's. Etel Adnan s The Arab Apocalypse is a book that defies what we consider to be the norm for form It is at once experimental and historical serving as a critiue and reflection on strife in the Middle East specifically in Lebanon For the most part it is largely impenetrable The language is fractured and scattered and graphic signs as described in the introduction by Jalal Toufic are placed throughout stanzas of what is best described as poetry The impenetrability of the book is most likely highly intentional The Arab Apocalypse was not intended for Western audiences it is written by a Lebanese artist and poet and intended for Arabic audiences As the introduction states it seems that the author also an artist had already translated it into graphic signs for so many Arabs who are illiterate for whom Arabic is as illegible as English and French may they be jolted by its graphic signsintro at last but not least learning to read and then actually readTo a certain extent this book should be placed with Rabih Alameddine s Kool Aids Both are reflections on war in Lebanon and both defy how we expect a book to be written While Kool Aids is told through a massive amount of narrators without traditional signage pointing to who they are this is told through poetic free verse In some ways it reminded me of the linguistic experimentation of the Beats A great example of this would be in VII when Adnan writes the followingBeirut sulphuric acid STOP the uarantina is torching its inmates STOP Beiruta sun on the finger a sun in the gun a sun climbing an elephantcannibal anthropophagus sun wart on the cargoes To describe this as stream of consciousness would be largely inaccurate Instead we should look at the book as a text that attempts to capture the internal workings of the mind in war and suffering As previously stated the graphic elements are a reflection on illiteracy But the greatest meaning comes from the way that Adnan seems to say to the reader I don t have to write how you expect me to write because the Western world doesn t expect writers from the Middle EastThough there are many excellent reasons to read this book I thought it was an overall unpleasant experience Coming from the Western world this was impenetrable and I often found myself reading without much direction If you re looking for a straightforward narrative or any sort of traditional poetic structure this book definitely is not for you If you re looking for something that shows elements of the Eastern world and the literature that has emerged from war this is the book for you Ultimately be prepared for discomfort when reading both in content and in form
