Nizariyat 

 

Is a collection inspired by Nizar Qabbani's poetry.

Nizar is a Syrian poet from Damascus. 

His poetry revolves around love combining feminism, eroticism and nationalism, in an elegant and simple style. Even though his poetry was faced with waves of opposition and fury at the time from a very conservative community, this revolutionary poet became one of the most admired Arab contemporary poets. He was referred to as the 'Poet of Love and the Woman' but his favorite nickname, however, was the 'Poet of Jasmine.'

 

He adored Damascus and mentioned its famous  aromatic Jasmine in most of his poetry. In his will, he asked to be buried in his beloved hometown, saying: "Damascus, the womb that taught me creativity and granted me the Alphabet of Jasmine."
