Abstract

Shocked by the Arab Defeat in 1967, the Syrian poet Nizar Qabbani engages in harsh criticism of his own culture. Part of his polemic belongs to the past, but the vibrant denounciation of authoritarianism has not lost its relevance, as proved by the success of Qabbani's poems among contemporary protesters. The article contains the first full translation fo Qabbani's acclaimed poem "Marginal Notes on the Playbook of Defeat".
