Poetry, paperback, 202 pages, from Maudlin House.
Exile Me is a collection of 34 poems by Seyed Morteza Hamidzadeh.
This translated edition with the original Farsi provided, navigates the tumultuous landscape of life and war in the Middle-East. Gut-wrenching verse combined with unique insights help to form this poetic snapshot that questions the morality of war in the 21st century.
“Hamidzadeh’s poetry gives voice to the heartbreak of modern war. I can find no comparison to its gift. We cannot forgive the forces that have caused him such misery, but we can marvel at the transformative power of this important book.”
-Charles Bane, Jr., Poet Laureate Nominee Of Florida.
“Seyed Morteza Hamidzadeh transports the reader to another part of the world in his poetry book, ‘Exile Me.’... We are given an extremely personal, honest, and strong collection of poems that present vignettes of struggle, brutality, and war. Hamidzadeh not only gives us that strong, raw voice we desire, but an eloquent one, too…”
-Zach Benard, author of The Lost Islander.
“Seyed Morteza Hamidzadeh’s poetry chisels pictures into your head with his dramatic imagery and striking spiritual themes. Often channeling some of the voices of the 18th and 19th Century, Seyed’s work can also follow the loose rhythm of modernity, complete with a blunt combination of violence and beauty.”
