Two years after Isa Kamari undertook the pilgrimage to Mecca, he wrote and published a series of 100 Malay poems based on his experience, titled Munajat Sukma, in 2003. Pilgrimage offers an English translation of selected poems from this collection. Arranged by Isa to form a sequential narrative of his journey, Pilgrimage is a conduit for new readers into the deep recesses of the pilgrim’s mind and soul.

Come listen as author and translator discuss the intricacies of poetry translation!
