This volume contains a collection of four essays -- delivered as lectures at the College de France in 1984, that were presented by the author -- that examine the tradition of the pre-Islamic poetry of Arabia and the relationship between Arabic poetry and the Quran, and between poetry and thought.

A time between ashes and roses : poems by Adūnīs( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and Arabic and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adonis's poetry and prose writings have aroused much controversy in the Arab world, both for their provocative content and their arresting style. Grounded in traditional poetic styles, Adonis developed a new way of expressing modern sentiments." "This bilingual edition, presenting the poems in Arabic and English on facing pages, is enhanced by a critical bibliography of Adonis's works, providing an accessible and crucial reference for scholars of modern and Middle Eastern poetry and culture. Shawkat M. Toorawa's translation finally makes the poet's signature work available to an English-speaking audience: the effect is no less powerful than were the first translations of Pablo Neruda into English."--Jacket
Sufism and surrealism by Adūnīs( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this remarkable book, Adonis, one of the Arab world's greatest living poets, set forth the peculiar convergence of ideas running through Sufism and Surrealism. While at first appearing to be in polar opposition, convincing parallels are drawn between these religious and aesthetic/atheistic movements. Adonis contests that atheism does not necessarily imply a rejection of Sufism, just as Sufism does not necessarily imply a belief in a traditional religion or faith. Both are related to the metaphysical, and both seek to say what has not been said, to know what has not been known"--Provided by publisher
