• Winner of the sixth annual May Sarton New Hampshire Poetry Prize

A contemporary woman makes complex negotiations with history and culture in a voice equally strong, discerning, God-soaked, and edgy—creating music out of personal longing and cultural tragedy. Hashem Beck's poems offer a lens through which to see life in the Middle East. They are timeless explorations of love, loss, and the poet's attempt to understand her own experience in the context of world events and the spiritual realities that permeate them.

REVIEWS

Louder than Hearts is a brilliant, daring addition to a growing corpus of work that celebrates our shared present while bearing witness to shared pain.
