When reading Susan Abulhawa's collection of poetry titled My Voice Sought the Wind, I made the mistake of going in with traditional Arabic poetry in mind, as some have compared her to Mahmoud Darwish. This made everything that much more harsh and hard-hitting. Her poetry has a mix of the good, the bad and the ugly, and I believe that perfectly sums up Palestine for many; beautiful but tainted with ugliness, and sometimes, you need to shed light on that.
