Gouda's Arabian Night of Poetry in Hong Kong

Nadwah - Hong Kong 8 October 2011



Egyptian poet Sayed Gouda featured a poetry reading on Friday 7 October 2011 at Book Attic, which was filled up with attendants of different nationalities. Gouda recited more than 20 of his new poems. The Arabic reading was accompanied by reading the translation in English, French, German, and Chinese with spiritual music of different origin to reflect the content and the spirit of the poems. After the reading, the attendants raised some questions to the poet regarding the value and the meaning of Sufi symbols in his poetry.


    At another event, Gouda gave a talk at City University of Hong Kong on 30 August 2011 entitled 'Mahfouz and Darwish: From National Literature to World Literature'. Among the distinguished guests who attended the talk were Egyptian Consul General Mr. Mohammad Fahmy and the internationally known scholar Professor Zhang Longxi together with other distinguished university professors and students.
