Leader of the modernist movement in Arabic literature, Adonis, a Franco-Lebanese poet, will testify to his experience during the interwiew.


Comparable to TS Eliot in Anglophone litterature, the legendary Adonis exerts a seismic influence on Arabic poetry. Born in Syria, he is one of the most recognised authors in the Middle East.
