Songs from Two Continents

(2011)
A collection of poems by

 
Songs from Two Continents is a paean on 'dualities'. Here, Europe and Asia entwine, life and death stalk each other, nationalities fuse and Good and Evil wrestle relentlessly to give meaning to existence. Like such pathfinders as Naczim Hikmet and Orhan Veli before him, Moris Farhi adheres to the ethos of Turkish folk poetry "" that poetry should be the pure distillation of emotions. From carnal desire to tender love, from rapture to sorrow and from mysticism to mundanity, he endeavours to expose, in the raw, the essence of our sensibilities. Imbued with the Levantine spirit, Moris Farhi enquires into such themes with his irrepressible sensual verve and passionate intelligence "" whether in maturity or in the rambunctious years of youth.
