Karim Fawzi

Fawzi Karim, born in Baghdad in 1945, is a deeply influential poet of the exiled generation. By the time Karim left Baghdad (for Beirut and later London), his reputation for subversive thought barred him from publishing even book reviews under his own name. He has written several books of poetry, and resides in London, where he is a columnist as well as the editor of his own quarterly, al-lahdha al-Shi'iria (Poetic Moment).
