A Boat to Lesbos is a powerful and compelling epic poem, written while thousands of Syrian refugees were enduring frightening journeys across the Mediterranean before arriving on the small island. Set out like a Greek tragedy, it is passionate and dramatic witness to the horrors and ravages suffered by Syrian families forced to flee their destroyed country, seen through the eye of history, the poetry of Sappho and travels of Odysseus. Plus poems written while the poetry visited Lesbos during the refugee crisis. A Boat to Lesbos has Arabic, French and Spanish editions, as well as this English one, the poet's first collection in English translation.
