An introduction to Arab poetics by Adūnīs ( Book )
19 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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. The author presents Arabic poetry as the quintessence of Arab culture and assesses the challenges of modernism and also the impact of Western culture on the Arab poetic tradition

A time between ashes and roses : poems by Adūnīs ( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and Arabic and held by 219 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."--BOOK JACKET
Transformations of the lover by Adūnīs ( Book )
5 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sufism and surrealism by Adūnīs ( Book )
7 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 192 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
