Read full description of the books Violenza e islam:UN GRANDE INTELLETTUALE ARABO SPIEGA LE CAUSE PROFONDE DEL TERRORISMO ISLAMICO
«Ho scoperto che tutta la nostra storia era falsata, inventata di sana pianta, e che quelli che hanno creato la civiltà araba e la sua grandezza sono stati banditi, condannati, rifiutati, imprigionati, oppure crocifissi. Bisogna rileggere questa civiltà e considerarla in modo diverso: con un nuovo sguardo e una nuova umanità.» Adonis
Conosciamo tutti la follia di certi leader arabi, responsabili dei massacri dei loro popoli, e conosciamo il loro odio nei confronti delle libertà pubbliche. Ma oggi lo Stato islamico, invocando la legge della sharῑ‘a, ostenta una barbarie che supera ogni immaginazione. Il suo compito sarebbe quello di ripulire la terra dell’islam da tutto ciò che minaccia la sua purezza. E in nome di questa purezza si commettono i crimini peggiori: uccisioni, stupri, massacri, saccheggi, vendita di donne, distruzione di siti archeologici e storici… La condanna dell’alterità va di pari passo con la desolazione e la rovina. «È la rovina» scrive Adonis «che caratterizza lo stato attuale del mondo arabo, un mondo in cui si politicizza la religione e si sacralizza la politica.» Oggi è della massima urgenza riflettere sul senso di questa rovina.
A partire da qui il nuovo, scottante libro di Adonis affronta il tema della violenza come aspetto costitutivo dell’islam e, passando al tempo presente, mette a fuoco i temi più drammaticamente attuali: il fallimento della Primavera araba, gli attentati terroristici, la nascita dell’Isis.
Read information about the authorAdonis was born Ali Ahmed Said in the village of Al Qassabin in Syria, in 1930, to a family of farmers, the oldest of six children. At the age of nineteen, he adopted the name Adonis (also spelled Adunis), after the Greek god of fertility, with the hopes that the new name would result in newspaper publication of his poems.
Although his family could not afford to send Adonis to school, his father taught him to read poetry and the Qu'ran, and memorize poems while he worked in the fields. When he was fourteen, Adonis read a poem to the president of Syria who was visiting a nearby town. The impressed president offered to grant a request, to which the young Adonis responded that he wanted to attend school. The president quickly made arrangements for Adonis to attend a French-run high school, after which he studied philosophy at Damascus University.
In 1956, after a year-long imprisonment for political activities, Adonis fled Syria for Beirut, Lebanon. He joined a vibrant community of artists, writers, and exiles in Beirut, and co-founded and edited Sh'ir, and later Muwaqaf, both progressive journals of poetry and politics. He studied at St. Joseph University in Beirut and obtained his Doctorat d'Etat in 1973.
Considered one of the Arab world's greatest living poets, Adonis is the author of numerous collections, including Mihyar of Damascus (BOA Editions, 2008), A Time Between Ashes and Roses (Syracuse University Press, 2004); If Only the Sea Could Sleep (2003); The Pages of Day and Night (2001); Transformations of the Lover (1982); The Book of the Five Poems (1980); The Blood of Adonis (1971), winner of the Syria-Lebanon Award of the International Poetry Forum; Songs of Mihyar the Damascene (1961), Leaves in the Wind (1958), and First Poems (1957). He is also an essayist, an editor of anthologies, a theoretician of poetics, and the translator of several works from French into Arabic.
Over the course of his career, Adonis has fearlessly experimented with form and content, pioneering the prose poem in Arabic, and taking a influential, and sometimes controversial role in Arab modernism. In a 2002 interview in the New York Times, Adonis declared: '"There is no more culture in the Arab world. It's finished. Culturally speaking, we are a part of Western culture, but only as consumers, not as creators."
Adonis's awards and honors include the first ever International Nâzim Hikmet Poetry Award, the Syria-Lebanon Best Poet Award, and the Highest Award of the International Poem Biennial in Brussels. He was elected as Stephen Mallarme Academy Member in Paris in 1983. He has taught at the Lebanese University as a professor of Arabic literature, at Damascus University, and at the Sorbonne. He has been a Lebanese citizen since 1961 and currently lives in Paris.
