Summary: "This anthology of new work, by established and emerging Syrian writers and artists, features essays, short stories, poems and songs, as well as photographs, cartoons, drawings and illustrations, capturing a people discovering themselves and coming into their own expression about their lives, hopes and aspirations during a time of great turmoil in a country where dissent was always heavily coded - and, when it wasn ʼt, was suppressed, its authors imprisoned." -- from publishers
" In Syria, culture has become a critical line of defence against tyranny. Syria Speaks is a celebration of a people determined to reclaim their dignity, freedom and self-expression. It showcases the work of over fifty artists and writers who are challenging the culture of violence in Syria. Their literature, poems and songs, cartoons, political posters and photographs document and interpret the momentous changes that have shifted the frame of reality so drastically in Syria" -- from publishers
