At Damascus Gate on Good Friday

Agnes Meadows spent several months in Gaza teaching and leading workshops, the culmination of which is this excellent collection of poems. There is no sensationalism in her work, just quiet observations about the everyday things that all of us take for granted yet which matter to people who have so little. Meadows’ adept turn of phrase and evocative imagery illustrate that hope can survive in the shadow of tragedy.
