Emad Fouad

Emad Fouad was born in the village of "al Faronija" in the Egyptian Nile Delta in 1974 and settled in Belgium in 2004. His latest book of poems, With a bruise from a bite of remorse, was written almost entirely in Ghent, but published in Cairo, like his earlier collections. Emad Fouad belongs to the generation of the 1990s, which abides by the metrical foot and has no time for the prose poem. Other features of his poetry are an intensive use of simile, his mixture of Egyptian dialect and standard Arabic, and his detailed drawings, which take on microscopic proportions in his latest collections. Emad currently has four publications 'Spirits wounded by the light', 'Boarding house of an old Don Juan', 'With a bruise from a bite of remorse' and 'Silk'.

selected poem


We were three
me... and her
and a green body buried carefully beneath our feet
She said: Why do flowers grow here?
I said: He died in love.

We were three
me... and him and a green body buried carefully beneath our feet
He said: How can he die alone?
I said: Because he is alone, still ... in it.

We were three
She... and him
My green body under their feet
when they stepped on the grass
she stood on my heart, the girl
I ordered the flowers to release their scent
and when I furtively saw him crying
my tears welled up
on the petals of the flowers.
