Fady JoudahÃ¢ÂÂs The Earth in the Attic is the 2007 winner of the Yale Series of Younger Poets competition. In his poems Joudah explores big themesÃ¢ÂÂidentity, war, religion, what we hold in commonÃ¢ÂÂwhile never losing sight of the quotidian, the specific. Contest judge Louise GlÃÂ¼ck describes the poet in her Foreword as Ã¢ÂÂthat strange animal, the lyric poet in whom circumstance and profession . . . have compelled obsession with large social contexts and grave national dilemmas.Ã¢ÂÂ She finds in his poetry an incantatory quality and concludes, Ã¢ÂÂThese are small poems, many of them, but the grandeur of conception is inescapable. The Earth in the Attic is varied, coherent, fierce, tender; impossible to put down, impossible to forget.Ã¢ÂÂ
