Nadine Ltaif's poems reflect deeply on the meaning of life, of regrets and the irrepressible determination to continue living. The poet takes us to Carthage; to Andalusia to contemplate its history of Moors, wars and religion; to India where women's lives, past and present, are expressed through vivid imagery. Hamra sees the exiled poet return to Beirut, the childhood home she fled in 1975. Yet, her poems are full of colour and lightness as she explores her old neighbourhood. "This you will not read" is a letter of love and absence in Montreal. Journeys are inspirational for Ltaif.
Here I am plunged into the centre of the earth/ curled around myself like an earthworm
