JASMINE MONOLOGUES by Samira Negrouche
Samira Negrouche, born in 1980, is an Algerian poet who writes in French. She is the author of several poetry collections and translates from Arabic into French. She is general secretary of the Algerian PEN Club and the initiator of CADMOS, an association for the preservation of Mediterranean cultural heritage. Her work has been translated into Italian and Spanish. Her style is marked by a feminine sensitivity which finds its reflection in an unexplored cartography of the body. Her prose poems bear witness to the condition of the contemporary world and to changes in Arabic countries and beyond. Current themes exist only to attract the attention of the artist, who is the only one who can see their enigma.
